2019 Elections

With fewer people attending church, electing people with drive and energy to decision making bodies within the Church in Wales, has never been more important.

We are seeking candidates from clergy – and lay people (those who are not a member of the clergy) – to stand for the Governing Body (the parliament of the Church in Wales), the Electoral College (the body which elects Church in Wales bishops) and the Diocesan Board of Finance (DBF).

A passion for faith

You will be responsible for decisions that affect the future of the future of the diocese, and the Church in Wales. Debates at Governing Body, for example, range from human trafficking and modern slavery to discussing new ways to grow faith. At Diocesan Board of Finance you will part of a team who make decisions to ensure our financial security.

You will be passionate about faith and committed to ensuring the Church in Wales makes decisions in the best interests of all communities across Wales. Most importantly, you will be the positive change you want to see in society.

Diocese of Llandaff needs people like you to reenergise Christian faith throughout Wales.
