Deanery Synod Meeting

The major item of business of this Synod meeting will be to consider ministry and mission with and amongst “the elderly”.  We have a arranged a presentation about services structured so that those who are living with dementia will feel comfortable and some practical reflections about worship from an older person.  There will be some time for group discussion.

Amongst other items of business, we also have a short, encouraging follow-up to last month’s presentation on environmental responsibility from Andy Lester of A Rocha.

All are most welcome.

Refreshments served from 7:30pm

Deanery Synod Meeting

Topic: Environmental Responsibility – Broken World, Radical Solutions

We are delighted to be able to welcome Andy Lester, Conservation Director of A Rocha, a Christian charity working for the protection and restoration of the natural world.  He was recommended to us from the St Albans Diocesan Synod where he gave a stimulating address last year.

Environmental Responsibility is vitally important for our churches, our mission and our own lives.  The talk will have a wide brief – from our own churches to the global extinction of species and our disconnection from nature.

A Rocha has a fascinating website at https://arocha.org.uk/ which shows the spiritual and Christian character of their work.

This event is open to everyone.  We hope you will invite members of your congregation.
