Meetings of Synod Members

Thursday the 26th of September

Synod Members recently gathered at The Edge in Wigan to receive a report from the Listening stage of our Synod, to hear our Synod Themes, and to think about the next steps in our Synod 2020 journey. 

The meeting was in four main parts:
  • Fr Peter McGrail presented the listening report that he and Dr Michael Miller produced. The full report can be read here.
  • Our four Synod Themes were announced.
  • Archbishop Malcolm offered some reflections about our Synod and how he will bring what he has heard to Rome.
  • The next steps in the process, when our themes are explored in local communities, were outlined - this handout gives an overview.
Most of the presentations from these meetings will be available as films on this website from Synod Sunday, 13 October 2019. Whilst they are being edited and prepared this short film gives a flavour of what were two positive and uplifting days.
