It meets over five days to w​orship, enjoy fellowship, receive reports and make decisions regarding the general oversight, direction and administration of the Church’s worship, witness and service.​
 
Opening worship of the Synod meeting will commence 7.30pm at St Michael’s Uniting Church, corner Russell and Collins St. Thereafter, supper will be enjoyed at 130 Little Collins St.

The Communications team has prepared some tips for how to send your video to us. Download the guide here​.

​All of the interviews and external shots of synod office in the sample video below were shot on a smartphone. We also used a lapel microphone that plugs into iPhones which we purchased at JB HiFi. You don’t need to do the editing. Just send us the raw footage with some additional photos and information if needed, and we can do the editing at our end. So please get out your phones and give it a go!
