The 146th Synod of the Diocese of Niagara
Saturday, November 7, 2020
The theme of our first-ever virtual synod is “Seeing with the Eyes of our Hearts.” Inspired by the Letter to the Ephesians, chapter 1 verses 15-19, the theme offers a lens to reflect upon the past year, giving thanks for the many ways our parishes have led with heart through the pandemic. At the same time, it also orients our synod towards the future as we continue to live into our diocesan Mission Action Plan (MAP) and explore new and emerging avenues for mission.
The Synod of the Diocese of Niagara is the legal entity (established by statute of the Legislature in the Province of Ontario) with responsibility for the ministry of the Anglican Church within its diocesan boundaries. At synod we seek to discern God’s mission for us as we pray, listen, discuss, and work at being the Church under the leadership of our Bishop, the Right Reverend Susan Bell.
