The project team implementing the 2021–23 General Synod resolution on ordination is calling for models for a way forward in which the LCANZ could operate as ‘one church with two different practices of ordination’.
The offering from this year’s LCANZ Convention of General Synod in-person meetings is contributing more than $30,000 towards a Finke River Mission (FRM) project producing, revising or reprinting Lutheran song and hymnbooks in Central Australian Aboriginal languages.
The General Church Board (GCB) and College of Bishops (CoB) have appointed the members of the eight working groups which will contribute to the preparation of the Ordination Way Forward proposal to come before the 2024 General Synod.
