The Diocesan Conference comprises lay members elected by Deanery Conferences, together with serving clergy, ex-officio, co-opted and nominated members. The President of the Conference is the Bishop.
It is held on the first Saturday of October.
The Conference has many duties and responsibilities under the Constitution of the Church in Wales, including the election of members to the Representative Body, The Governing Body, and the Diocesan Board of Nomination.
The Conference is involved in pastoral reorganisation within the diocese, and a substantial amount of its duties in this, and other respects, are delegated to the Standing Committee.
The Conference receives reports from all the diocesan directorates, boards and committees, and also receives the audited accounts and budget. Additionally, through discussion groups, it considers – and advises upon – various aspects of the mission and ministry of the Church in the diocese.
