The York Diocesan Synod is the governing body of the Church of England in our diocese.

It considers matters sent to it from General Synod and from deaneries, formulates diocesan policy, advises the Archbishop as appropriate, and votes on the funding of stipends and administration. Lay and ordained members elected by Deanery Synods serve for three years.

All Synod meetings are open and public (unless it is a meeting in closed session for a specific item), but only members are entitled to speak or vote.
