Synod Moderator

 Eastern Synod Moderator - Vacant position 

The roles of the Moderator are many and varied.  Together with the Synod Pastoral Committee, the Synod Moderator in a range of ways, offer support and care to ministers and churches and, though the diary is sometimes challenging, try to be available to respond to the needs of both.  

Together with colleagues who serve as Moderators in the other twelve Synods the Moderator has a particular role of introducing prospective ministers and prospective pastorates to each other.  At this point this time we are hosting the URC ministerial vacancies’ Profiles pages which can be accessed by the menu to the right of this page.
