2023 Synod Meeting
The dates for the 2023 Synod meeting are 21st - 24th June. More details to follow at a later date.
We gather members from congregations and ministries from across South Australia. In the Uniting Church, the Synod is one of the interrelated councils of the Church, each council having its separate responsibilities, and the requirement to listen to other councils of churches.
