This post gives a unique and exciting opportunity to support the
spiritual life of the Synod at its meetings.
As Chaplain to the General Synod, you will be a non-Synod member who will plan, produce and oversee the delivery of all elements of worship at General Synod, ensuring that worship at each Group of
Sessions of Synod enriches members’ experience and brings the
service of Christ to the detail of church business, while encouraging a dependency of faith and trust.
Your judgement, theological thinking and highly developed pastoral and interpersonal skills will be vital as you work with both Synod members and volunteers to carry out this work. Reflection on how the worship was received after a Synod will provide the opportunity for development and new ideas for the future.
