Synod

Synod theme

On Synod Sunday, 13 October 2019, our Synod Themes were announced around the Archdiocese. These four Themes will be the focus of the next stage of our Synod Journey and the focus of our prayer, reflection, and discernment over the coming months.

Our Synod Themes are:

  • All called and gifted by God
  • Sharing the mission of Jesus
  • How we pray together
  • Building community, nurturing belonging

The next task is to generate the proposals for action within each Theme. These proposals will be taken forward to the Synod Day in October 2020 to be voted on.

Synod Members will be working locally to create opportunities for us all to engage with the Themes, reflect on how they challenge and inspire us, and generate proposals that will help us to become the Church God is calling us to be.

Themes will be considered one-by-one with each having their own specific period of reflection.

Meetings will be arranged for all of the parish to attend. Dates will be published in the parish newsletter.

Alternatively post your comments in the Synod postbox in the foyer of St Gregory's church.
