Auckland Synod 2016

Your 4 synod delegates did a great job at Synod last week, each of them spoke in front of the 300+ assembled.  Michael and Jeremy for example,  moved a motion challenging churches to help the homeless in our city by working more collaboratively with each other and community based agencies.  They also encouraged every church to send a team to volunteer at the Auckland City Mission distributions centre or community foodbanks. Our BOLD crew were very encouraged by the financial support synod members gave them as they worked at synod & sold chocolate (‘keep the change’ was a common refrain).  I noticed an increase in people under 30 representing their churches, including Jess, who also promoted BOLD during the Cathedral’s presentation.
