Over the weekend the Bishop Nomination Board advised parishes of progress leading up to the Bishop Election Synod, including indicating that they will be nominating three people to the Synod for consideration.
The Bishop Election Synod papers will be emailed and posted to all Synod members on Friday November 10.
Please hold in your prayers at this time the nominees and their families; those responsible for organising the Synod, that it might be a place of prayerful discernment and Godly conversation; and the members of the Synod as they prepare to undertake this important work on behalf of us all.
This year’s Synod will open with a Synod Eucharist at St Peter’s, East Maitland, 7pm on Friday 24 November. All are welcome to attend this service of worship. The Election Synod will then gather the following day at Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College, with Synod commencing at 9.00am. Our ordinances direct that Election Synods are held in camera.
Please find some prayer resources which we hope will be helpful to both parish groups and individuals as together we hold in prayer the work of God before us:
