Protest at new C of E Synod

Synod member Sarah Finch writes: The newly-elected General Synod has met in Church House, Westminster, for the first time in person since February 2020.

The election had been a serious contest in many places, with more candidates standing than ever before: 60% of members are new. Commentators have noted, cautiously, that the proportion of orthodox members in Synod would be large enough to stop legislation designed to revise the doctrine of the Church of England. (All legislation has to be passed by a two-thirds majority in all three houses, Bishops, Clergy and Laity.)
