We have 3 places for people aged 18-25 to come along with our Synod reps when General Synod meets in July 2020 (Date’s to be confirmed) in York. You’ll see church politics in action, meet dozens of friendly bishops, see figures who make the news in person (like archbishop’s) – a unique experience!
It’s free, accommodation and meals are provided (also free!) and travel expenses (within the UK) reimbursed, so it’s open to 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!
Unfortunately, the deadline for 2019 entries was the 26th May and we've yet to confirm the dates of the 2020 Synod. 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!
