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The Church Representation Rules were originally enacted as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.
