Cancellation of the meeting of General Synod: 7th–9th May 2020

Cancellation of the meeting of General Synod: 7th–9th May 2020

The holding of the Church of Ireland General Synod from 7th–9th May 2020 in the Croke Park Conference Centre, Dublin, has been cancelled due to the Covid–19 pandemic. The move to do so was proposed by the Honorary Secretaries of the General Synod and passed unanimously by resolution of the Standing Committee.

The booking with Croke Park Conference Centre has been transferred to 5th–7th May 2022 (the General Synod of 2021 will, as mentioned in the General Synod Book of Reports in 2019, be held in the Armagh City Hotel).

The Honorary Secretaries and the Standing Committee are considering a possible rescheduling of the General Synod to take place later in 2020, and will be guided by the latest advice from public health authorities, with the safety of Synod members as their priority.
