SYNOD 2020’s next phase is of drawing up Proposals for Action from discussions of the 4 Themes, each with a month dedicated to it.

In this Synod Theme we reflect on how we are sent out into the world to proclaim the Good News to the whole of creation.

In becoming the Church that God is calling us to be:

  • How do we more effectively evangelise and lead people to a deeper relationship with Jesus?
  • How do we show the compassionate love of Jesus in our work for justice, peace, and the integrity of creation, in our acts of charity and our works of mercy?
  • How can the parish rise to the challenge of sharing the mission of Jesus?
  • How can we equip people to be the presence of Jesus at work, at home, and in the street?

The Synod Prayer Stations within Sacred Heart and St John Stone churches are for all to use, adding your prayer and reflection for us becoming the church God is calling us to be.


Lord, I thank you for the wonder of my being, and for all the goodness in my life.

I thank you that you have called and gifted met thatI might make a difference in the world in which you have placed me.

Open my heart more fully to your Spirit, that I may rejoice in all that you have done and will do in me and through me.    Amen
