Why nominate to attend Synod?


It is important that the attendees at Synod are reflective of the membership of the church including young people, people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

The Synod meeting is a time for your collective voices to be heard by the whole church and for you to help shape the future of your church.


The Synod of Queensland recently produced a video for Young Adults about to attend their first Synod meeting.  If you are considering nominating to attend your first Synod, this video will tell you what you can expect.
