Diocesan Board of Patronage

The Diocesan Board of Patronage is a statutory body which has the right of presentation to clerical appointments for a number of benefices in the diocese. Members of the board are involved in the process of shortlisting, interviews and appointments, and encourage appointments which are compatible with the traditions of each benefice. Board members also visit clergy to offer their support during the year.

Board members are appointed by Diocesan Synod for a six-year term.
