Diocesan Conference 2021
Vision in a post-pandemic world
Thursday 23rd September 2020 (online)
Saturday 25th September 2020, St Teilo Church in Wales High School
As the world moves into a post-pandemic situation, the focus of our Diocesan Conference will be on how the Church can strengthen its ability to engage with the communities which we are called to serve. How can Ministry Areas Ministry Areas support the recovery of our communities.
Come prepared to share your views and hear our plans as together we grow the Kingdom of God.
This year we are holding lay and clerical elections for the Governing Body (GB) of the Church in Wales. We will be electing:
- Two clerical members.
- Four lay members.
The aspirations of Diocesan Conferences can feed directly into the business of the GB, and conversely Dioceses and their Conferences are frequently called upon to engage with initiatives agreed at Governing Body.
This is an exciting, if challenging, period for the Church, and we are seeking engaged and committed people to exercise leadership roles within it.
Conference members are invited to make nominations and to vote. Nomination forms are below and should be sent to
- The Venerable Mike Komor, c/o The Diocesan Office, The Court, Coychurch, Bridgend, CF35 5EH, firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for nominations is Tuesday 31 August 2021.
Voting will be by electronic ballot. Conference members will be sent a ballot link by email when it goes live in early September.
