Synod Meeting at Te Aroha - Friday 2nd March 2012
Members of Synod from throughout the district gathered in Te Aroha to rekindle friendships over a tea meal provided by Eastport Womens' Fellowship. In Synod business, we received various reports and engaged in two group discussions. The first considered the Methodist Conference 10 Year Mission Priority 'Let the Children Live'. The second looked at reinvigorating a Synod recommendation to Conference to allow lay Synod Superintendency when suitable leaders were available, had received appropriate training and met with the endorsement of the local Synod.
Rev Dr Susan Thompson welcomes members of Synod to the business sessions. Mrs Mary West, Synod Secretary, former Vice-President of the Methodist Conference, and Rev Dr Susan Thompson, Synod Superintendent.
