SGM Quiet morning: Taranaki
WHAT DOES THE LORD REQUIRE OF ME?
MICAH 6 verse 8
As the nation decides who will be the next political party to determine the direction and policies of our land, you are invited to take time out to pray and explore 'what the Lord requires of me'.
This quiet morning will be an opportunity to focus on the Lord's call on our lives, as we consider the gifts, influence and community connections we have to live Kingdom ways and to bring God's love to our neighbours, wherever they may be.

Synods in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia were the first in the Anglican world to enable Bishops to call the House of Clergy and representatives of the House of Laity together to assist them in the governance of the Church. Bishop Selwyn, the architect of the Constitution of the Church in these islands, was determined that Bishops should not have to govern alone. As he famously said; “It remains then to define by some simple principle the terms of our co-operation. They are simply these; that neither will I act without you, nor can you act without me”.
Synod 2017 documents will be made available when possible and no later than 15th September 2017..
