Notices for Members of OSG and others interested.
30/04/2021: The delayed February Group of Sessions of General Synod met virtually on Zoom for the two days 23rd/24th of April. A few teething problems resurfaced and matters proceeded a little more slowly than if we were in a physical meeting. BUT - things got done. Votes were taken a number of times using something called the Crystal Interactive Voting System - quickly dubbed the 'Crystal Maze' by those less comfortable with this sort of technology. However, the system works and generates results very quickly so over the two days, things ran increasingly smoothly.
We have added Tim Hind's take on the latest Group of Sessions. Insightful as ever! Find it here. This is not an 'official' report but rather one experienced Lay Member's personal views of events which we hope you will find interesting.
The OSG continues to hold an open door for those Members of Synod looking for a neutral space whilst our latest Newsletter is now online and can be downoaded from here. Do feel free to circulate among friends or use in your Parishes.
Our OSG Synod Review on Saturday 11th July 2020 in the James Hall went the way of most thiings last year. However, we still hope to meet in person in July 2021 and schedule our Synod review for then. Watch this space...
