DUE TO CORONAVIRUS THE SYNOD OFFICE IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
PLEASE NOTE, for the moment, the office is only open on certain days and for limited hours, and these are not regular. Messages should be picked up on a reasonably regular basis, though that is not guaranteed. Depending on circumstances, we hope to reopen the office in a more settled, but possibly still limited, way around the second week of September. Email remains the best means of contact.
Staff can be contacted by email, addresses can be found under CONTACT US or in the Synod yearbook.

CHURCH BUILDINGS INSURANCE –COVID 19
Edwards Insurance Brokers have obtained this statement from Congregational, which insures most of the property in the Eastern Synod. It relates to the rules relating to empty buildings where a church has decided to close temporarily because of the current health crisis. Any enquiries relating to insurance matters for your church should be addressed to Edwards Insurance rather than to Congregational in the first instance.
