Last chance to ask your question

26th Aug 2015

For the 2015 elections to General Synod, the national church parliament, Chelmsford Diocese has introduced an easy way for the voters to engage with the candidates.

Deanery Synod members, who make up the electorate, have been given the chance to ask their questions by email. The deadline for questions is this Friday, August 28.

Pastoral secretary Nathan Whitehead (pictured) said:

“Members of Deanery Synods have been responding to an invitation to ask questions.

"Don’t miss your chance to put your question to the candidates hoping to represent you.  

"Email your question to me by Friday at 1 pm.”
