Root and Branch Synod

Root Branch 2 1

Root & Branch Inclusive Synod, Bristol 5 - 12 September 2021,  A Synod that starts with women. But does not end there.

Caring Catholics, lay and religious, are meeting online, sharing their concerns, their disillusionment and their love for the Church. 

Root and Branch believe reform is needed. After a year-long phase of Discernment they believe the following must be explored: 
1.The redefining & reclaiming of ministry 
2.The embracing of diversity 
3.A rethink of moral theology 
4.The sharing of authority 

Root & Branch invite you to embrace and advance renewal, reform and healing in the Catholic Church. The Synod being held will discuss issues of equality, inclusion and governance between 5 and 8 September in online workshops, culminating in a conference 10-12 September at St Michael’s Church Centre, Stoke Gifford.
