"Father Alan, Rev Vincent and Robyn Anne, with the reps Janet and Margie, have just returned from a really uplifting and enjoyable week at the Archdeaconry of Gibraltar Synod. All the chaplaincies were represented with over 100 people sharing worship, teaching, Business issues and good practice initiatives. The speakers were really brilliant, inspiring us and sharing some difficult topics with such humour and down to earth presentations that we were able to really "own" all the recent changes and developments. It was a great time of feeling part of the Diocese, understanding we are part of something much bigger, a vibrant and enthusiastic Body of Christ. The theme of Synod was Building the Body of Christ and in the worship services alone, the fellowship was tangible. The singing was amazing, there was a Healing service and our own Father Alan celebrated the Eucharist in the local Catholic Church in honour of this being his 50th year of Ordination.
There are photos and daily write ups on the Llanos Facebook Page but these are some taken by Revnd Paul Strudwick of the various events which we enjoyed."
