Follow Synod online

 on November 1, 2015

The 156th Regular Session of Synod is coming up, and while motions are moved and seconded in a hotel ballroom in Richmond Hill, the conversation will continue in quite a different venue: online.

For those who want to follow along in real time, Twitter is the best place to get the latest news. The diocesan account, @anglicandioTO, will share live updates from the floor of Synod using the hashtag #torsyn15. Other Twitter users will also be able to join the conversation using that hashtag, which identifies all tweets about a particular topic.

Those not following along on Twitter will still be able to stay up to date. Highlights from each day of Synod – including the online conversation – will be posted on the diocesan website and shared on social media. You can find links to all of the diocese’s social media accounts at

The diocese is also using social media to get people involved before Synod starts. Anglicans on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are being asked for their thoughts on the theme of Synod, “Treasures New and Old.” Where do you see our diocese celebrating both the new-and-different and our traditions? How can we encourage the best of traditional and fresh expressions of church?

It’s not too late to share your ideas. Write on the diocese’s Facebook wall, tweet @anglicandioTO, send a message through social media or email [email protected], and you might see your thoughts on display at Synod.

You can learn more about Synod by watching Archbishop Colin Johnson’s pre-Synod video, available on the diocesan YouTube channel at, or by visiting
