Synod 2020 Talks

As we move to the next phase of our Synod Journey we are hosting a series of talks that will help us to better understand some of the pressing concerns of the Church and society as we continue to discern the Church that God is calling us to be.

Location: The talks are held at LACE (Croxteth Drive, Liverpool L17 1AA). Please Note the Change of Venue
Tea and Coffee from 7pm. Talk begins at 7:30pm. Concludes at 8:45pm. Optional Night prayer follows at 9pm.
