Preparations are well underway for Diocesan Synod. The Synod (AGM) will take place May 14th and 15th at Christ Church Cathedral. The 2010 Synod title is “Moving Back into the Neighbourhood” and the general tone of the conference component of the meetings will reflect the diocesan focus on “missional church.” Rabbi Robert Daum, Director of theIona Pacific Inter-Religious Centre will be the Diocesan Synod Partner.

Rabbi Daum is scheduled to attend the entire day on Saturday, May 15th but will not be available Friday evening. He is scheduled to address Synod twice, preaching during the opening worship at 9am and then he will present a reflection on the events of the day at 4pm.
