The 36th Synod in Session to be held from 7pm Friday, 13 May to 12noon Tuesday, 17 May 2022. The plenary sessions of the Synod will be held in the Auditorium, Alexandra Park Conference Centre, Mari Street, Alexandra Headlands, on the Sunshine Coast.
Synod represents a fantastic opportunity for members to:
- become involved in the discernment of the church,
- celebrate the grace of God in Jesus through worship while hearing of the ways in which God is inspiring, guiding, shaping and empowering other parts of the church, and
- meet new people and reconnect with friends, hear their stories and learn.
a daring HOPE
The theme for the 36th Synod in Session is “a daring HOPE”.
After the challenges of the last two years, it is easy to feel burdened or overwhelmed, and yet the writer of Hebrews calls us to ‘hold unswervingly to the HOPE we profess, for he who promised is faithful’.
a daring HOPE is based on our trust in an infinite God, who draws us to what is possible more than what is probable.
a daring HOPE is a deliberate act of our will more than an expectant emotion.
a daring HOPE is choosing to offer our finite efforts alongside the infinite resources of God, so that all things might truly be reconciled in Christ.
