The 20th General Synod elected Pastor Paul Smith as the LCANZ’s next bishop and Pastor Neville Otto as the assistant bishop. Delegates also elected the General Church Board to serve the LCANZ for the 2021-24 synodical term.
The LCANZ’s General Synod will be able to meet electronically should this be necessary in future, following the approval of changes to the church’s bylaws. The changes to the relevant bylaws were approved earlier this month by a postal ballot of delegates from the 2018 Convention of General Syno
‘They’ll know we are Christians by our love’ was the message behind the launch of the God’s love – our care document at the LCA/NZ’s recent General Convention of Synod. This document is the re-working of the One Loving God – two hands saving and caring paper.
