Synod will meet at Roker United Reformed Church, Side Cliff Road, Sunderland, on Saturday 14 March 2020
The church is less than a mile from Seaburn Metro station.
If travelling by bus, you can catch the Stagecoach X24 from Newcastle Pilgrim Street at 8.18 or 8.50 am, changing to the Stagecoach 23 at Sunderland Fawcett Street, arriving at Fulwell Road near the junction of Side Cliff Road at 9.20 or 9.50 am.
In line with other synods due to meet this Saturday, we have decided it best to cancel the meeting at Roker United Reformed Church, Sunderland, due to the spread of coronavirus/Covid-19.
The decision has not been taken lightly. The Assembly Moderators have also decided to cancel Mission Council, which was due to meet next week.
We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment that this decision may cause, especially to those of you who have worked diligently to produce papers for Synod. If anyone has already incurred expenses in arranging to attend Synod, please do get in touch to claim a reimbursement from our Finance Officer, Helen Hogg.
In the meantime, we pray that you are all able to make use of Saturday in other ways and that you will all remain in good health.
With kind regards
Revd David Herbert
