General Synod 2022: day-by-day reports and photos

June 14, 2022

General Synod 2022 took place at St Paul’s & St George’s Episcopal Church in Edinburgh from 9 to 11 June.

The meeting was held in hybrid format. While the majority of Synod members gathered in Edinburgh, a small number opted to join the meeting online.

The Synod Agenda and Papers can be found here, along with links to associated documents.

A series of reports from the meeting has been published on the Scottish Episcopal Church website. Links to each report appear below.

Day 1: Primus condemns deportations as Synod opens

Day 2 (morning): Russian aggression deplored

Day 2 (afternoon): The pathway to net zero

Day 3: ‘Don’t give up on the young’

The results of the votes on each motion at Synod can be found on the SEC Twitter feed

A request was made during Synod that a recording of the presentation made by Robert Woodford on behalf of the Provincial Environment Group (Day 2 afternoon session) should be made available. It can be watched here.
