That this General Synod amend section 8(f) of the Constitution to read as follows:
- f) Each Diocese shall be entitled to elect clerical and lay members of the General Synod, with the number from each Order being determined by the following formula:
- Average Weekly Attendance in the Diocese divided by Average Weekly Attendance in all Dioceses, multiplied by 110.
- Provided that:
-- (i) the resulting number will be at least 1;
-- (ii) if the resulting number is a fractional number and is greater than 1, it will be rounded down to the nearest whole number if the fraction is 0.5 or less, and rounded up to the nearest whole number if the fraction is greater than 0.5;
-- (iii) "Average Weekly Attendance" means the combined total attendance at Regular Services in the particular calendar year, divided by 52;
-- (iv) the Average Weekly Attendance figures to be used are those for the second calendar year prior to the year in which General Synod will take place;
-- (v) "Regular Service" means any worship service for which the attendance has been recorded in the Register of the Congregation (including Home Communions) but excluding weddings, funerals and services held in medical or long-term care facilities.
and this resolution shall come into effect upon Second Reading being given to Resolution A019.
