Our Deanery consists of the parishes in Tandridge who collaborate, share resources and information, support and learn from each other. It also acts as a bridge between the parishes and the Diocese, the wider church and beyond.
The Synod meets at St. John’s, Hurst Green. All licensed clergy in the parishes are automatically members and our lay representatives were elected at the 2020 APCM, the number based upon electoral roll figures in 2019 to act for 3 years. Current members are Bobby Clarke, Hilary Clarke. Geoff Izzard myself. During the year members had the important duty of electing Southwark’s representatives to the General Synod. The hustings were entertaining.
We met on Zoom 3 times in 2021 and summary reports of each meeting are attached, where much of interest was discussed and presentations were made
