This week the five Moderators of the northerly Synods met in Windemere for a day (from left to right myself NW Synod; Jacky Embrey, Mersey; Dave Herbert, Northern; Kevin Watson, Yorkshire and also Moderator of General Assembly for 2 years; David Pickering, Scotland). The URC Synods are divided into 3 “cell groups” and our five Synods form the northerly group. Our meeting together several times a year contributes to our working together across the Synods in different ways, which is already enabling us to share gifts and resources in fruitful ways for the life of the Kingdom at work in our congregations.
Please continue to pray for:
· the northerly Synod conversations at which we are represented (next meeting in November) for exploring new ways in which we can work together and share precious resources
· the Moderators as they build relationships together (both the Northern and Scotland Moderators are new in post this summer)
· the Revd Kevin Watson in his work for the General Assembly, and for others in the Yorkshire Synod who are helping to make his wider working for the denomination possible
