Synod Youth Delegates – Notice regarding the Change of Age

(Approved at the last Diocesan Synod)

Constitution 6(2) states:  "Each youth delegate shall be a communicant and regular attender who will be at least sixteen years of age upon the opening of Synod and under the age of twenty-five years upon the conclusion of Synod and who is also qualified to vote at meetings of the pastoral unit he or she is to represent.”

What this means for Synod 2013 for Youth delegates regarding age qualification: 

Youth Delegates must be at least 16 years of age by May 30th (opening of Synod) and under 25 years of age as of June 1st (the closing of Synod 2013). 

The 10th  Assembly of the World Council of Churches seeks Youth Stewards and Young Communication Professionals from October 23 to November 10, 2013 in Busan, Republic of Korea.                                        

Young Christians from around the world are invited to apply to the World Council of Churches (WCC) Stewards Programme for a 3 week hands-on learning experience.  Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 30 years old.

The World Council of Churches seeks young communication professionals from its member churches and ecumenical partners to work for the upcoming 10th Assembly.

The six-unit resource Pilgrimage to Busan: A Journey into Ecumenical Christianity invites churches and congregations to explore the themes of Christian unity, justice and peace in advance of the WCC 10th Assembly. It is designed for use by congregations in study groups, adult forums, or for a day-long retreat.
