2020 Diocesan Synod—10-12 September 2020

Important information about Pre-Synod meetings and Synod (as at 12 Aug 2020):

 

  1. Pre Synod meetings: we will go ahead with meetings planned for this evening at Avonhead and for tomorrow evening at Amberley, since neither meeting should breach the 100 limit. We are already aware that people are planning to not attend either physical meeting and instead to join the Friday morning Zoom pre Synod meeting at 10 am. (This meeting will be recorded for those unable to join it).

  2. Synod itself: we will be working on an “alternative Zoom programme (including Synod service)” for Synod should we not be able to proceed with the physical meeting of Synod, so keep Synod dates in your diary.

 

 

 


This is the Third Session of the 54th Christchurch Diocesan Synod

Christchurch Diocesan Synod will run from Thursday 10 September to Saturday 12 September, 2020, at St Christopher’s Church—Avonhead Parish

On 10 September a Synod Eucharist Service will be held in the Christ Church Transitional Cathedral.
