Tue 24 Nov 2015

By Antony Bushfield

The Queen will open the Church of England’s General Synod today.

Joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, Her Majesty will attend a service at Westminster Abbey to mark the inauguration of the Tenth Synod. Each synod lasts five years.

Royal reign milestoneIt will be presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury Most Revd Justin Welby and a sermon will be delivered by Father Raniero Cantalamessa, Preacher to the Papal Household.

After the service the Queen will make her way to the inauguration ceremony in Church House, the Westminster headquarters of the Church of England.

General Synod is the Church’s national assembly which decides canon law and other matters of importance to the faith.

It has powers to pass measures which, if approved by resolution of each House of Parliament, receive Royal Assent and thereby become part of the law of England.

The main debate will be about how Britain responds to the refugee crisis.
