Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

As a recently appointed Dean this event aims to offer you an opportunity

  • to reflect on the role you are undertaking together with others in a similar position
  • to explore the different aspects of what is involved in this area of responsibility
  • to consider how you might develop the life of your deanery within the overall mission and ministry of the church.

The conference is led by those with experience of continuing ministerial education and the work of a Dean, together with people of particular expertise from participating dioceses to enrich and facilitate our work together.

The event offers an opportunity for mutual support through informal networking and fellowship and shared prayer and worship. The conference sessions explore the areas of the job description and its theological context, matters of ecclesiastical law, the role of the Chapter, the Pastoral committee, and the deanery synod, the cooperation of Dean and Lay Chair and issues relating to spirituality, ministry and mission.

This event is usually by invitation, but if you would like to know more please contact Sue Denham.

The Diocese of Chelmsford also has an Area Dean's Handbook and a Lay Chair's Handbook which can be downloaded from here.

Area Deans may also download the current version of the expenses claim form which they should use.
