About the The National Deaneries Network
( formerly the Church House Deaneries Group)
National Deaneries Nerwork consists of a group of enthusiasts for the life,
work and development of deaneries within the Church of England. It aims both to
stimulate local and national consideration of the developing role of the deanery
and facilitate a national network of information about deanery thinking and
The members have a
strong and on-going conviction about the importance and relevance of the Deanery
with its enormous mission potential in today's Church of England.
The National Deaneries network aims to
stimulate thought on the potential and developing role of the deanery
the exchange of information about ideas and deanery initiatives, and to
further the mission opportunities of deaneries.
These aims are furthered by
providing a National Conference every two years the first one of
which was held in 1988
working on research projects
writing papers and booklets - published through the link with the
Deanery Resource Unit of Parish and People Publications.
Deaneries Network is independent and receives no financial
support. The members who meet four times at Church House, therefore, pay
their own expenses.
Members of the group include Rural Deans, Lay Chairs, General Synod members,
Diocesan Development Officers and others in senior diocesan roles.
