The CHURCH and SOCIETY NETWORK started to get underway in 2015 and coincided with the revised Synod structures relating to the new system for committees and Area Groups of churches. The process went through the Synod committee (MIG – Mission Initiative Committee) and was later adopted and launched by a Meeting of Synod , when a number of people signed up to be members of the Network. Since then it has produced two newsletters a year and run 4 Church and Society Saturdays at different church locations. At these events the network explored different church and society issues such as inter-faith activities with children and young people; refugees; people seeking asylum; embracing difference; rising hate crime; child line.
It has also drawn on the experiences of local church involvement with their communities, in relation to mental health, food and fuel banks, youth ministry etc. Such involvement has had a positive outcome for several church congregations and the faith of their members. The Network is now linked in with the Synod’s Discipleship Steering Group.
