‘Hear our Voice’ Diocesan youth synod is cancelled

Tuesday September 25th 2012

A Diocesan youth synod due to take place at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, on Saturday October 6 2012 has been cancelled.

Clergy have been advised in a letter signed by the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy, along with Keith Neill and the Rev Peter Ferguson of the Connor’s Energise youth committee.

The letter states: “We have had to recognise that our plans for a youth synod do not appear to have been the most appropriate day or time to facilitate our young people to have their say.

“The limited representation from across the diocese has encouraged us to find another way of enabling this process. It is still vital to find a way to hear and respond to the needs of our young people.

“With this in mind we are cancelling the event of Saturday October 6 in St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast. We propose that during the next calendar year we will facilitate an event in each of the rural deaneries to meet with the young people and hear their thoughts.”
