Executive Committee

The Synod Executive Committee has a strategic role in drawing together the work of the various Synod Committees, preparing the Synod meetings, and monitoring the work of the Synod. It meets three times a year and consists of the following people:

Convenor - Moderator - Revd Andrew Mills

AndrewMills Moderator

Andrew was invited to take up the role of Synod Moderator in September 2015, and was willing to respond to that call to share with others the wide ranging responsibilities for the life and witness of the churches across the Synod.

Within the breadth of the task Andrew sees the pastoral care of ministers and the support of congregations as a priority, in enabling both ministers and churches to fulfil their calling to a life of Christian work, worship and witness in local communities.

Andrew also represents the Synod at a regional (and national) level, particularly in ecumenical contexts where building relationships is key to a closer working together and a cooperation which strengthens our joint witness to Jesus Christ.
