This meeting has also scheduled time on the agenda to consider proposals that were not dealt with at the November 2018 meeting of the Presbytery and Synod.

Membership of the special meeting of Synod is the membership roll of the November 2018 meeting. A letter has been sent to members as notice to convene the meeting. More information can be found on the website here. Please register your intention to attend as soon as possible, as we need to ensure a quorum of at least 50% of the membership of the November meeting is met.
Please pray for this important meeting of our Synod.
