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 list of current Synod members is available from our ROLL OF SYNOD (V1.7 – updated 6 September 2023).
