A huge thank you to everyone who made Synod such a great day, from the parking attendants to the cake-bakers and tea-pourers, to everyone who took part in presentations and worship and to all the volunteers and staff who prepared the venue for the event. Thank you God for the sunshine and thank you to the caretaker for the heating (eventually!)
The morning was spent thinking about what makes a 'good ending; — to the life of a person or a congregation. Very much helped in our thinking by Revd Gary Windon, Minister for Audlem Mission Area and Hospice Chaplain at Nightingale House Hospice, Wrexham — and by Revd Liz Dunning, minister in the Brownhills and Willenhall Circuit. This was preceded by a powerfully moving video of Peter Knight, made in the week before his death.
The afternoon was taken up with a wide range of business reminding us of the diversity of life within the District. This included a presentation on Homelessness and consideration of two Memorials.
