Announcement from District Church Board
At the meeting of District Church Board (DCB) on Thursday 26 March, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was resolved that regrettably, the LCAQD Pastors’ Conference (including the Ministry Summit) and Convention of Synod cannot be held on the previously scheduled dates in June 2020.
Alternatives dates and other details will be explored by the respective District Pastor’s Conference and Synod Planning Committees and these will be considered at the April DCB meeting.
DCB acknowledges that the appointments of all who currently hold positions on District Church Board, Council for Lutheran Education Queensland, Council for Ministry and Mission Queensland, Council for Lutheran Services, Council for Lutheran Youth of Queensland, Constitutions Committee, Risk Audit and Finance Committee and Nominations Committee will continue until the next Convention of Synod.
Following Government direction, and out of concern for the vulnerable, DCB advises that DCB, Councils and Committees of LCAQD, including congregation/parish and school/college councils are to avoid face to face meetings for the duration of the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, and that other communication mechanisms such as teleconferencing and emails should be used for dissemination of information and for decision-making.
Synod Date Claimers
2020 5-7 June, Toowoomba (postponed)
2021 5-6 June, Metropolitan City
2022 10-12 June, Regional City
At our annual Convention of Synod, delegates and visitors gather to celebrate who we are and where we've been in the past year. As the agencies of the Lutheran Church Queensland District, we gather together to discern, through prayer and conversation, where God may be leading us in the years ahead.
So while it's our District’s Annual General Meeting, the opportunity to worship together and to connect over food and conversation is just as important for the health of the LCAQD as the business decisions.
