Safeguarding will occupy some time and we will get onto sexual orientation and forms of relationship. We are always talking about mission and evangelism. We have now removed one of our barriers to mission. We need to dismantle others. I can assure you we are a talking shop, we will find plenty to talk about!

the other important function of General Synod is to provide a forum within which people from different parts of the country and different church tradition can get know each other and value the others' ministries and mission fields.
