After an extraordinary year, we are looking forward to new ways of celebrating being the Church and living out our faith. Our Synod meeting in 2021 is being adapted to suit this challenging time and has a theme to match. Synod 2021 will explore where the wild God is, a God that is active in the turbulent world in which we live right now. 

We will discern and seek to obey Christ’s call together as we participate in worship, bible study and throughout the business in which we engage, across the Synod in session. 

The Synod Standing Committee has determined that Synod 2021 will take place in an online environment (73/20SC). Meeting online presents both challenges and opportunities to our regular practice of gathering over three or four days every eighteen months. 

In order to meet these challenges and capitalise on these opportunities the Synod Standing Committee has endorsed a model of Synod 2021 that, at first glance, might be described as a six month process involving the whole Church rather than just a three day event involving members primarily.
