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.

16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM Against Gender-Based Violence and Domest

16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM Against Gender-Based Violence and Domestic Abuse started on 25 November and is being marked around Ely Diocese with action and displays.

The campaign takes place each year from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) until 10 December (International Human Rights Day).

A Silent Vigil will be held in St Catherine’s Chapel, Ely Cathedral on Friday 6 December, with a banner witness outside, weather permitting.

All very welcome to join us between 11.30am and 12.30pm, for some or all of the time. Or pop in during the day if you cannot make it in the morning.

For the following days (from Friday 6 to Friday 20 December) there will be a display showing how Mothers’ Union members locally and around the world support victims (located in the SW transept - through the main West Door on the right-hand side).

There will be a box alongside for anyone wishing to make a donation of items for the 3 Women’s Refuges in the Diocese.
