Synod Meeting

The Synod meets approximately every 18 months to receive reports, discern proposals, and discuss matters that concern the general oversight, direction and life of the Uniting Church in Victoria and Tasmania.

The 2022 Synod meeting will commence with an Opening Worship service at 7:30pm on Thursday June 30 at Wesley Church, Lonsdale Street Melbourne, when Moderator-elect David Fotheringham will be installed as our Moderator for the next three years.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Opening Worship and Installation with supper served afterwards at the Synod offices next door. For those attending in person there is also the opportunity to book a tour of the Wesley Place Synod offices between 3pm – 5pm on Thursday 30 June. Tour bookings can be made here.

The Synod meeting will then continue at Box Hill Town Hall from Friday, July 1 until Sunday, July 3, as an in-person gathering of members of the church nominated by all eight presbyteries.

The Tributes Service will again be held after the Synod meeting on Saturday 23 July at Wesley Uniting Church which is open to all to attend. The Tributes Service will also be livestreamed and will honour and acknowledge Ministers who have:

  • been ordained, retired or been received from other denominations since the preceding Synod meeting (2021).
  • celebrated 50, 60, 65 and 70 years since ordination or commissioning.
