|To support the life of EfM groups and provide for the possibility of new groups forming, we need mentors who are trained in the necessary skills to facilitate co-learning groups.|
|A mentor is not an expert, or a tutor, but a co-learner with group members who has the added group skills to ensure that a safe, honest, non-judgmental learning environment is fostered.|
|If you think that you might have what it takes to be a mentor, and/or are interested in in stepping into the adventure that is EfM, please contact either the Executive Officer or an EfM Trainer:|
TIME: Commencing Friday evening October 13 and concluding Sunday afternoon October 15
MEETING: Holy Trinity, Stratford (Corner of Regan St and Juliet St)
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..
