Forecast of future General Synod business
One or more Private Members’ Motions and Diocesan Synod Motions are customarily included in each group of sessions.
The forecast of business provides a forward look to the groups of sessions in 2012. (There are always considerable uncertainties when looking ahead in this way, so this should not be read as more than a broad indication of business that may come to the Synod in the future.)
The Committee hopes to keep the ‘challenges for this quinquennium’ in mind as the Synod proceeds through the five years.
