On Sunday the 3 February 2019, Archbishop Malcolm McMahon inaugurated Synod 2020. The Service included the words of Proclamation of Synod 2020 which will be held from 17-18 October 2020, followed by the Liturgy of Commissioning where all Synod Members made their Profession of Faith. The Service concluded with a 'Liturgy of Light and Sending,' inviting us to pray for the work to be done by the 500 members of the Synod.
