Just a quick message from your friendly neighbourhood secretary. The February Deanery Synod is in two weeks, and will be held via zoom so there’s no need to brave the cold for this one. We’ll be meeting on Thursday 24th February, starting at 7.30pm and looking at Living in Love and Faith (LLF) resources with Rebeccah Cooper-Jones & Rev Jody Stowell.
The hope is for people in Church of England churches across the country to use these resources to study and pray together. This church-wide learning together, listening to one another, and listening to God, is intended to enable the Church of England to discern a way forward in relation to matters of identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage. The zoom link for the meeting is here.In preparation for the meeting, please take a look at the below documents and get ready to bring your questions to our expert speakers.Deanery Synod Meeting AgendaOctober 2021 Deanery Synod Meeting Minutes Please make sure to mark the 24th of February into your diary and I look forward to seeing you all there!
