Appendix D: Meetings, Teams, Groups and Committees
These are the meetings, teams, groups and committees scheduled for 2010:
Deanery Synod: Representatives of all parishes, churches and clergy in the deanery meet three times a year to pray, share information, dis-cuss ideas and make decisions about strategy and policy.
Deanery Mission and Pastoral Committee: Representatives of the parishes and clergy in the deanery meet three times a year to make decisions about deployment and other operational issues.

Deanery Leadership Team: Office holders meet six times a year to plan agendas and implement the policies and actions required by the diocese and the deanery.
Deanery Finance Committee: This group meets as required to discuss the allocation of parish share and other financial issues.
Deanery Strategy Group: This will be an open group which will meet three times a year to review the progress of our deanery plan and suggest further action.
In addition the deanery has an active involvement in:
Mission Partnership Assembly: The assembly acts as the deanery synod when it meets and is empowered to act as such.
Ecumenical Pastoral and Sponsoring Committee: This acts as the “sponsoring body” and has formal responsibility for the oversight and review of LEPs in north bucks.
Ecumenical Oversight Group: This is a meeting of local denominational leaders which meets to share news and discuss joint activity.
There are many other meetings, teams, groups and committees on which the deanery is represented directly or indirectly but these are the ones through which deanery business takes place.
