Locating General Synod papers

If you don't know the exact group of sessions, or the GS number of the paper, you can always consult the General Synod Index. This has traditionally been issued once a quinquennium, and provides a more detailed research tool that allows for a thematic search. The Synod Index will help you identify the document you are looking for. Eight Synod indexes are available online for you to consult; a guide showing how to use them is being prepared and will be available shortly.

Once you know the GS number of the paper you can consult our lists of links to Synod papers, presented in GS number order. Almost all papers in the last quinquennium (2005-2010) and some of those from the preceeding one (2000-2005) are available online in electronic format.

If the paper you seek was issued before 2000, you will need to apply to the British Library or Lambeth Palace Library. The Synod Office is unable to respond to requests for copies of backdated GS Papers. Some more recent titles published under the CHP imprint may be available for purchase from Church House Bookshop.
