Diocesan Synod

This year’s Diocesan Synod took place online on Saturday 10 October where Paul Williams, the Bishop of Southwell & Nottingham made his address.   

He began by expressing gratitude for the extraordinary way that the churches, schools and other ministries across the Diocese have served with such compassion, courage and hope through these past difficult months. 

Whilst acknowledging the profound reality of the difficult times we are living through, where churches cannot and should not expect to return to the same former patterns of ministry, Bishop Paul urged us that as Christians, we can be outrageously hopeful, compassionate, outwardly focused and willing to take faith-based risks with wisdom and courage.
