Deanery Council

Each of the five deaneries has a Deanery Council, the purpose of which is to develop and strengthen the mission and ministry of the church in the Deanery and address such other areas of concern as may arise, including the policies and programs referred to it from the Synod or the Diocesan Executive Committee.

The voting membership of the Councils include: (a) the clergy holding the Bishop’s licence to serve in the Deanery; (b) the lay Incumbents licensed by the Bishop to serve in the Deanery; (c) the Deanery Lay Stewards; (d) the Lay Delegates to Synod from Deanery parishes or their alternates; (e) the three Deanery youth delegates to synod, the deanery youth representative to the Diocesan Youth Ministry Committee, and the Deanery Youth Coordinator(s); (f) the Churchwardens of the Deanery parishes; (g) a representative of the Deanery Anglican Church Women; and (h) such other persons as the Deanery Council may decide to include.
At least three meetings are held per year, and these are convened prior to the meetings of the Executive Committee.
