Synod 2019

The Synod meeting, or the Synod in Session, is a gathering of around 400 members of the Uniting Church in Queensland and happens every 18 months.

The Synod in Session has responsibility for the general oversight, direction and administration of the Church’s worship, witness and service in the region allocated to it with such powers and authorities as may from time to time be determined by the Assembly (Basis of Union Paragraph 15).

The 34th Synod will be held from 5 pm Friday, 17 May to 12 pm Monday, 20 May 2019. The plenary sessions of the Synod will be held in the Auditorium, Alexandra Park Conference Centre, Mari Street, Alexandra Headland, on the Sunshine Coast.

Oxley-Darra’s delegates to Synod are Rev Andrew, Heather Coupland, and Jan Thompson. Please pray for them, and for all the delegates, that they will discern God’s will for the Uniting Church in Queensland.
