The Business of the RPCI Synod resumed on Tuesday 11th June in Limavady. Matters discussed included the denomination’s finances and best practice for gospel ministers arranging their pension plans, before extended consideration was given to the Church’s Mission Reports. Great encouragement can be taken from gospel witness in Limerick (Republic of Ireland), the completion of a building for worship in Nantes, France, and a steady stream of visitors and several new members in Seville, Spain. The Synod al then took time to consider the work of the Education Committee, established at Synod 2023.Considerable time was taken to pray for the work of Mission following the reports.
