UME Executive Director Changes

Rev. Kath Merrifield has been seconded from her role as UME Executive Director to the Synod Secretariat for 2017 to assist with the development of the Synod Pathways Project. This project is designed to engage the ‘grass roots’ (especially congregations and presbyteries) of the church in a cooperative process of assessing, imagining and planning for the future. Initially, this process will be trialled in Parramatta Nepean and New England North West presbyteries and the results will be shared with the whole church at the Synod meeting in October.

Rev. Dr Rhonda White has been seconded from her role as Practical Theology Lecturer to be Acting Executive Director of Uniting Mission and Education through to the close of the Synod meeting, October 3, 2017.

These changes coincide with and complement a comprehensive review of current operations which will assist the Synod to establish an operational plan that connects purposefully with the whole Church.
