Vision for our synod
The Vision, Mission Principles and Statements of Intent have been approved as a strategic framework for the Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.
In April the Synod Standing Committee said the Vision, Mission Principles and Statements of Intent should act as a guide for “the purpose of prayerfully engaging in spiritual and theological discernment regarding the future direction of the Synod".
Other councils, institutions and groups in the synod will be invited to dream, wonder and explore with prayerful open discernment how their current and future activities live out God’s purposes as reflected broadly in the Vision and Mission Principles.
In terms of the MSR’s wider work the Vision, Mission Principles and Statements of Intent have been the reference point for recommendations already approved and for other proposals that will be considered at Synod 2016.
