All is welcome !

Southern Synod a new face and a new heart !

The recent Synodical Commission meeting implemented the decision of the Regional meeting in 2007, to change the name of the Synod. The new name decided upon is SOUTHERN SYNOD. This name, of course has been in circulation for years, so we simply endorsed an identity that has been alive, in the minds and words of us all.

Another deeper development is the decision to implement the Integrated Ministry model. This model has been discussed and workshopped at length and we feel that this is the way to go.
Key ministries is hence for us: Service and Witness, Congregational as well as Proclamation and Worship.

We will continue to update our systems and forms to further phase in this new face of ministry
