Church Representation Rules


The Church Representation Rules were originally enacted as Schedule 3 to the Synodical Government Measure 1969 and have been continually updated since then.

The Rules are a vital tool for all those involved in parochial, diocesan and national Church governance. In particular, the Rules govern the preparation of the church electoral roll, the conduct of annual parochial church meetings, and the membership and election of PCCs, deanery synods and diocesan Synods.

Advice on the Rules should be sought in the first instance from your diocesan registrar.
