House of Clergy
The Rev Mark Barker (St Stephen, Tonbridge)
The Rev Julie Conalty (Christ Church, Erith)
The Rev Angus MacLeay (St Nicholas, Sevenoaks)
The Rev Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy (St Aidan, Gravesend)

The complete list of results is being posted here (not all are in yet). 

A list of all who stood, with their election addresses are here.

Please pray for all who have been elected to represent us in what is, in effect, the national "Parliament" of the Church of England, and for all the decisions they will make over the next five years, which is the length of the Synod.
