The Church and Society Commission (CASC) wishes to fill a casual vacancy. The Honorary Secretaries of the General Synod are inviting members of the Church of Ireland who have relevant experience and who are willing to be considered for membership to submit expressions of interest, accompanied by an outline of particular skills or experience. In particular, expressions of interest from women are welcome, to address imbalances of gender among the current membership.
Applicants with an interest in gender issues, the new Irish, new forms of work and/or a legal background are particularly welcomed.
Members of CASC should be prepared to work proactively to produce comment, briefings, and statements, working in small teams, or to promote activity related to these headings within the life of the Church. CASC normally meets 4 times a year in either Belfast or Dublin; however, if there is significant legislative activity, a particular group may find that its time commitment may be considerably increased while the issue remains current.
Please send expressions of interest to Ms Caoimhe Leppard, Church of Ireland House, Church Avenue, Rathmines, Dublin 6, by 31st July 2018, or by email to Caoimhe email@example.com.
More information about CASC can be obtained from Caoimhe (+353 1 4125 608).
On behalf of the Honorary Secretaries of the General Synod.
