Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) Meeting Dates

Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) Meeting Dates

The DAC meets eight times a year, typically six weeks apart. The dates for October/December 2019 and all of 2020 are set out below. Typically the DAC meet at the Diocesan Offices, Barton Road, Ely.

There can be up to 50 agenda items for consideration at each meeting, so to enable us to manage the workload and provide information to DAC members in advance, we ask for all papers and information to be submitted a fortnight in advance of the meeting at which the work or project will be considered.

Similarly, whilst we aim to provide feedback (both informal and Notifications of Advice) as quickly as possible, we ask parishes to allow a period of approximately ten days after each DAC meeting before contacting your case worker in the Church Buildings and Pastoral Department - by which time you should have received an indication of the outcome.

For any queries or clarifications regarding the DAC dates or process, please contact the DAC team on [email protected].

Meeting details are as follows.

Churches remember three remarkable abolitionists

On the 30th July 2020, churches remember the extraordinary work of three remarkable people in the abolitionist movement.

The Rev Nikki Mann introduces three short videos on Olaudah Equiano from the Rev Eleanor Whalley, Thomas Clarkson from Rev Matthew Bradbury and William Wilberforce from Rev Andrew Hammond.

Please click on the name heading below to be taken to the video reflections, or click here to view them on the YouTube playlist.

Olaudah Equiano

Olaudah Equiano (c. 1745 – 31 March 1797), was a writer and abolitionist. Enslaved as a child, he was taken to the Caribbean and sold as a slave to a Royal Navy officer. He was sold twice more but purchased his freedom in 1766. As a freedman in London, Equiano supported the British abolitionist movement. Here he is introduced by the Rev Eleanor Whalley from St Andrew's Church, Soham, Cambs.

Thomas Clarkson

Thomas Clarkson (28 March 1760 – 26 September 1846) was an English abolitionist, and a leading campaigner against the slave trade in the British Empire. Here the Rev Matthew Bradbury introduces us to him from Wisbech, Cambs.

Thomas Clarkson

William Wilberforce (24 August 1759 – 29 July 1833) was a British politician, philanthropist, and a leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade. Here the Rev Andrew Hammond introduces William Wilberforce from St John's College, Cambridge.
