In the hierarchy of the Church of England, The Parish of Wiverton in the Vale is one of 28 parishes in the Deanery of East Bingham. This is one of five deaneries in the Archdeaconry of Nottingham which, in turn, is one of two archdeaconries in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham.
The Deanery Synod is a council convened by the Area Dean and the Joint Lay Chair of the Deanery Synod, who is elected by the elected lay members. It consists of all clergy licensed to a benefice within the deanery, plus elected lay members. It acts as an intermediary between the parochial church councils (PCCs) of each parish in its deanery and the synod of the diocese as a whole.
