GS 1998 Article 111 – Overture of Aldergrove re Women’s Voting
Committee IV presents agenda item II.I
Overture from the Church at Aldergrove regarding the matter of Women’s Participation in Election of Office Bearers.
This is an overture from a church directly to General Synod and consequently it is inadmissible on the ground that “a new matter which has not previously been presented to that major assembly may be put on the agenda only when the minor assembly has dealt with it.” (Article 30 C.O.)
Synod declare this overture inadmissible on the ground of Article 30 of the Church Order.
