What is the General Synod and what does it do?

The General Synod is the legislative body of the Church of England. Together with the Westminster Parliament, it is the only body in the land which is entitled to make national law for England. 

In addition to legislation, the General Synod also agrees the national Budget for the Church of England and debates a wide range of public and social issues.
