Briefing and training for Lay Co Chairs of Deanery Synod

Whilst there are a number of training events across the country for Rural / Area Deans often they are over subscribed or at times which mean there is little opportunity for Deanery Lay Co Chairs to attend.
Following a number of enquires to the Church House Deaneries Group regarding training for Deanery Synod Lay Co Chairs a one day workshop / briefing is to be piloted in the St Albans diocese. Others are also being planned in Southwark.

With the role Deanery taking a much higher profile, greater responsibility is falling on the Lay Co Chair. Whether a new or a seasoned hand on Deanery Synod the workshop will not only provide on overview of the role and responsibilities of the Lay Co Chair it will also look at new developments and the changing role for the Deanery and what that means for the leadership of the deanery. 

St Albans diocese are to run the first one-day workshop for Deanery Lay Co Chairs on 28th January 2006. It will primarily be of interest to those in the St Albans Diocese and surrounding dioceses, however, if space permits it may be possible to accommodate delegates from further a field. 

Details of this workshop and a similar day in the Southwark diocese will be available during October.

For more information about the workshops or if you would like a workshop in your diocese drop a note to the Church House Deanery Group or post a comment on the Deanery Forum

If your diocese runs or is planning similar events please let us know so we can share experiences.
