‘Let Us Talk’ results to be discussed at Synod

by Michael Ford last modified 11 Jun, 2013 01:38 PM

Groups in parishes and deaneries have discussed the personality and character of the diocese, and what it means to be ‘local church’ across Dorset and Wiltshire, over the last six months. The Bishop of Salisbury received nearly 200 responses under the banner of ‘Let Us Talk’ and results will be presented at the Diocesan Synod meeting on Thursday 13 June in St Paul’s Salisbury (6.30pm).

The Bishop launched 'Let Us Talk' during a presentation to Diocesan Synod on Saturday 3 November 2012. The results of those conversations will be presented and delegates will discuss the findings. A number of responses are available for viewing on the diocesan website.

Other agenda items include the AGM of the Diocesan Board of Finance, where the 2012 Report and Accounts and the 2014 Budget will be considered. Synod will hear a first airing of proposals for diocesan involvement in Salisbury Cathedral’s celebrations for the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta; the worship will provide an opportunity to mark and celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Sudan Link.

The Diocesan Secretary, Lucinda Herklots, said “This is a varied programme, with celebrations for the 40th anniversary of our partnership with Sudan this year and a renewed discussion on our local and common life. Magna Carta was a watershed for human rights at the time; we still have rights to address 800 years later.”
