Within the United Reformed Church, Synods undertake a wide range of functions to support local churches.
As Thames North Synod, we aim to provide support to local churches through our programmes, committees and staff.
Every year, the Synod organises some regular training events and some special one-off events. Regular events include:
Ministers’ Spring School
Thames North Synod has been organising an annual Ministers’ Spring School for many years jointly with Eastern Synod. The Spring School is organised by a Planning Group consisting of elected Ministers from each Synod and the two Synod Training Officers.
There is a dedicated Facebook page with all the latest information supporting children’s and youth work in Thames North Synod churches. Please click here to visit this site.
Pilots children came to the West Midlands Safari Park from churches across Wales, Scotland and England on a big day out!
Thames North Synod has a team of specialist staff who support churches going through transition and/or experiencing difficulties. We are always happy to hear from Ministers, and take opportunities to explain what we are about!
