General Synod: July meeting to take place in London

The University of York, which hosts the annual July group of sessions of the General Synod, has taken the decision to cancel all events on its campus this summer as a result of the impact of the coronavirus.

Arrangements are therefore being made for the Synod scheduled for July 9 – 13 to take place at Church House, London, during the same dates.

It will be the first full in-person Synod for 18 months. Although it is expected that the final stages of the Government’s ‘reopening’ roadmap will have been passed by that time, Synod staff will ensure that all necessary health and safety arrangements are in place for everyone attending.

A timetable for the group of sessions will be finalised by the Business Committee later this month and the full agenda and papers will be published on the Synod App and the Synod web page on Friday June 25.

Is there evidence of the efficacy/ effectiveness (and expense?) of Synod meeting in London and/or York- eg relative attendance/ participation? Similarly re Online? Might this inform consideration of a ‘new normal’? When is the purpose and operation of Synod next up for review?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
