Dear Synod Members
Representative Synod: April 25th 2020
We are writing to inform you that the Conference Office has agreed that all spring Representative Synods that have not yet been held should now not take place, due to the necessary restrictions in place.
Of course, the main theme for these Synods would have been the resolutions contained in the God in Love Unites Us report.
Although it is uncertain when we will begin to return to normality, it is important to be clear that the Methodist Church will ensure that there is proper opportunity for all the District Synods to confer and register their votes before any decisions are made by the Methodist Conference (whenever it turns out that the Conference next meets.)
In the meantime, please be assured of our care and prayers for all of you, and all our churches and circuits in these challenging days.
Leslie Newton and Jackie Gaitley
District Chair and Synod Secretary
