Clergy who are licensed and beneficed in the Diocese were eligible to vote in the House of Clergy elections and lay members of Deanery Synods could vote for those standing in the House of Laity. All those eligible to vote were sent details of how to do so, either via email or post (where no email address is held). 


There was an opportunity to take part in hustings with those standing in each house on 22 & 23 September. Unfortunately the House of Clergy hustings weren't recorded due to a technical issue, but you can listen to the House of Laity hustings below:
