Comments: July General Synod Agenda

Where's Paul Eddy's motion on the uniqueness of Christ, salvation only through Him and evangelism? Which false prophet bishops are against it? Who engineered its removal from the July agenda? Why has the C of E hierarchy, in their abject weakness of belief, lost their nerve with regard to the biblical Gospel? Why has the C of E no prophetic edge? What's the point of synod?

A spokesman for the Church of England insisted the debate on the missionary role of clergy had only been dropped because the other Private Member’s Motion had more signatures.

He said: “Owing to time constraints, the Business Committee has been able to schedule only one such motion for July, on the subject of Church Tourism, which heads the list in terms of the number of signatures from members.”

...Move along now... nothing to see here...

I am interested in the general synod presentation on Faith, Work and Economic Life on 7 July at 8.30 pm. I am co-author, with industrial chaplain David Welbourn, of the book The Spirit at Work Phenomenon, (Azure, 2004) and am working in the field of spirituality and the workplace. (My new website should be running by 24 June!). I wonder if I could attend this meeting and if so who should I get in touch with? And where is it?

General Synod meets in the Central Hall of the University of York. There is a public gallery and so far as I know all you have to do is turn up and ask to be let in. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, although I don't think there will be a problem getting in for this particular debate. You may well have your bag searched. If you want to be absolutely sure try e-mailing the synod office (
