We have a few places for people aged 18-25 to come along with our Synod reps when General Synod meets on the 6-8 July 2018 in York. See church politics in action (!), meet dozens of friendly bishops, see figures who make the news in person – a unique experience!
It’s free, accommodation and meals are provided (also free!) and travel expenses (within the UK) reimbursed, so it’s open for everyone. For a detailed summary of what Synod’s about, try the Church of England Website’s summary, or, for some (juicy) nuggets of action, try looking through the official @synod account on Twitter… People often communicate more via Twitter during debates than actually speaking out loud!
Oh, and recognise any of the people below? Here are our Synod reps and observers in July 2015 with two very smiley Archbishops:
Unfortunately, the deadline for entries was the 21st May. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any burning questions or desire to get involved - we always love people getting involved! Also, keep an eye on our Facebook / Twitter updates for future opportunities to observe Synod!
