The Synod meets about 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 Synod meeting includes nominated representatives from all eight presbyteries.
Synod 2022 was held from June 30 to July 3 at Box Hill Town Hall. This was the first in-person Synod meeting since 2019. The meeting was also live-streamed and recordings of most sessions, including the Opening Worship and installation of Moderator David Fotheringham, are available to be viewed here.
Traditionally, Synod meetings include a Tributes Service, which honours ministers who, since the previous Synod meeting, 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.
The 2022 Tributes Service is being held as a separate event at 2:30pm on Saturday July 23 at Wesley Uniting Church. This service will also be livestreamed and you can watch the livestream here.
