The annual meeting of the Synod of Western Australia occurs every September. Lay and ordained members appointed by reporting bodies meet over two days to worship together, share our experiences, receive reports and make decisions about the direction and administration of the Church. Between Synod meetings the elected and ex-officio members of the Synod Standing Committee act on behalf of the Synod and deal with specific issues that come out of the Synod.
The 43rd Annual Meeting of the Synod of Western Australia will be held from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 September 2019. Download the First Mailing Letter here.
Register for the Opening Worship and/or the Annual Meeting by Friday 30 August 2109.
In light of the Synod’s Green Church Policy, this will be a paperless Synod.
In addition to the website, members can access and download all Synod meeting documents and information using the 2019 Synod meeting app.
To download the 2019 Synod Meeting app, search for YAPP in your device’s app store (Android/Google Play and Apple/IOS/App store), download it like any other app, and when prompted, enter the ID: SYNODWA.
Non-Android/Apple device users (Windows/Blackberry) will still get an app like experience if you use this same link.

Our model of decision-making in the Uniting Church in Australia can be a bit confusing at times – information, deliberation, decision, indicator cards…
How does it all work? Take a look at this video featuring Uniting Church members from across the Synod of Western Australia, briefly explaining how decisions are made at Synod meetings. #SynodWA2018.
