Agenda

In Synod we will join in worship when Loraine will be our preacher. 

Rev Dr Helen Cameron, Assistant Secretary of Conference, will be joining us to speak about the new system of supervision.

We will share with our probationers and give thanks for those supernumerary ministers who have died since we last met.

We have four presbyters requesting to sit down this year, Alan Boyd, John Peters, Mick Dilley and Dick Styles and we will hear from them.

If you have anything you wish to go on our agenda in March, do please let us know by the 27th February, then if time allows, it can be incorporated into our time together.

Standing Orders

Can I respectfully remind you of Standing Order 411(6) and 741:

“every minister and probationer, unless excused by dispensation of the Chair, is required to attend the
Synod of which he or she is a member and to remain throughout its sessions.” 

Please do contact one of us if Synod causes you any conflict in terms of your diary.

Permanent Dispensations

If any supernumerary minister would like a permanent dispensation from Synod then please do let Loraine know.

We look forward to sharing with you on the 6th March.
