Your diocese has elected you as a delegate to General Synod 2010. What does it mean and what happens next?
We hope the documents in the orientation section will help you answer that question….and perhaps a few of the questions you would ask if you knew the answer to the first one.
You are commissioned by your diocese to share your insight and experience as both a parishioner and a member of your diocesan synod, in order to tackle some of the important national and international issues currently facing us as a Church. You will be called upon to listen, to consider, to speak, and to vote. Together with more than 300 other members, your task will be to interpret the mission of the Church and set program priorities for the next three years of national work.
We’d like to help you feel as confident as possible about your task – a considerable one – as a member of the 39th General Synod.
On Thursday, June 3, 2:00 p.m. an orientation session for all members of General Synod will be held in the Plenary Hall, Tower Fitness and Recreation Centre to help equip you for the week’s work. It will be important for you to attend this session, as it will make you a much more informed and useful member of General Synod.
