Nancy Hurn, General Synod archivist, believes in “open, equal access to records.” Her work is an example of “transforming unjust structures.”

The General Synod Archives acquires, preserves, and provides access to records of enduring value created by General Synod, its committees, councils, boards and commissions. Their holdings include the official papers of the Primate, the General Secretary and all other officers and employees of General Synod.
