Dear Friends,

I’m pleased to be able to update you on some new colleagues who are joining the Synod Team in the next few weeks.

Next Monday (17th) Claire MacIntyre will be joining us as our new Office Manager, following Hazel’s retirement earlier this year. Claire is an experienced office manager who joins us from a small business based in Salford. She will be responsible for the day to day running of the office and for providing support to the Moderator and the other Synod Officers. Once the office reopens at the beginning of September, Claire will be contactable on the normal Synod Office number, she can also be contacted on the email address admin@nwsynod.org.uk.

Tim Hopley will be joining us as Synod Clerk / Operations Manager on the 1st September. Tim is an Elder at Greenmount URC and is a qualified solicitor, who has recently taken early retirement from his practice. Tim will bring a wealth of experience from both his church life and professional career to this new role. Tim will be responsible for the smooth running of all aspects of the Synod’s support for churches and for the effectiveness of its governance. Tim will be contactable on the clerk’s email address clerk@nwsynod.org.uk when he joins us.

I will be continuing as Synod Treasurer and for an interim period will retain the responsibilities for our response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the planned relocation of the Synod Office, and the work on the Synod review commissioned at the last Synod meeting.

I’m sure you will wish Claire and Tim well in their new roles with the Synod.

Best wishes

Mike Hart Interim Synod Clerk
