Update – press release

Informal virtual meeting of General Synod members to take place
09/06/2020

The timetable for an informal virtual meeting of General Synod members has been published.

The timetable for an informal virtual meeting of members of General Synod on Saturday July 11 has been published. This has the support of the Business Committee of the General Synod after it was confirmed that the residential meeting due to take place in York in July had been cancelled in the light of the coronavirus pandemic. The term of the current General Synod has been extended for a year with planned elections to the General Synod postponed until next autumn. Synod officers continue to explore options to enable the Synod to transact its business remotely if it is not possible to meet in person in November.

The timetable can be found on the Synod area of the Church of England website.

Church of England bishops who publicly criticised Dominic Cummings over his breach of lockdown rules have come under fire from members of the C of E’s governing body over their use of social media during the controversy. IMAGINE IF THEY/WE FOLLOWED JESUS…with all of OUR Hearts… Proverbs 31:8,9… “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,  for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” ~ Whom do WE Serve?
