The 2008 Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland (Covenanters) meets in Faughan Reformed Presbyterian Meeting House (pictured above), Londonderry this evening and will finish on Wednesday night with a Missionary Rally led by Pastor David Vaughan (a Reformed Baptist missionary in France).

Although I shall not be attending any of the meetings myself, it is hoped that the Synod will be a harmonious gathering and a period of blessing for the church.

I know of one Puritan Board member who once visited our Synod (ADKing), has anyone else ever been over?

And a very delightful time it was indeed. The concluding missionary rally was particularly edifying that year. I remember Ted Donnelly's sermon and the hundreds of people joined in psalm singing. I will be in prayer for synod this year, Daniel. Is it possible to let us know the highlights when you find out?

I should be able to do that; but I hope that there will be no "highlights" as that is usually a good sign.

Any updates, Daniel?
Nothing much to report; highlights were these:

Rev. Geoffrey Allen was official accepted as a minister of the denomination.

Some changes to Reformed Theological Colleges curriculum - learning of Greek and Hebrew will be staggered - all Greek 1st year, all Hebrew 2nd year, both languages 3rd year.

Students at RTC will have to do a 6 month placement with a minister after they complete their academic course.
