Presbytery Restructure Resources Mar 5, 2019
At the November 2018 Presbytery and Synod meeting, voting members agreed that the existing structure of one Synod and one Presbytery in South Australia (existing since 2006) be modified to allow for more than one Presbytery.
The meeting further agreed to:
A non-geographical Presbytery (NGP) would be created to operate by 1 July, 2019
Additional Presbytery(ies) would be formed
Congregations will have an opportunity to nominate which Presbytery they wish to be part of
In order to achieve this the Standing Committee, resourced by two task groups will review the current structure and prepare recommendations for the Presbytery and Synod meeting in June 2019.
