Thames North Synod is one of 13 Synods that make up the United Reformed Church. With the River Thames as the southern boundary, the 136 local churches of Thames North Synod serve communities in Greater London, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Bedfordshire and Essex. The purpose of the Synod is for our 140 local churches to work together to support each other’s mission and ministry. The main meetings of the Synod take place 2-3 times each year when Ministers and other local church representatives meet for worship and to plan our work together. In addition to this there are various committees that meet regularly to co-ordinate our work.
The Synod has a dedicated team of officers and staff. Some of our staff team are based in our Synod Office in Central London while others spend most of their time visiting and working with local churches. Information about each member of the team can be found in the ‘Who we are’ section of the website. Our website has a lot of information about what we’re doing. Whether you are a visitor here or already a United Reformed Church member, we hope you find what you are looking for. Please do get in contact with us if you think we might be able to help in any way.

Synod Moderator Review
Every church in the Synod is asked to contribute to the current review of the Synod Moderator – Revd Dr Andrew Prasad. Synod Moderators of the United Reformed Church are appointed for an initial period of seven years, but there may be an extension for a further term of service for a maximum of five years. A review needs to be undertaken as part of this process. Andrew Prasad completes six years of service for the Synod in September 2014 so it is necessary for a review to take place now. To participate in the review, please download the attached letter from the Synod Clerk, complete the attached form and return it to the Synod Office by Wednesday 30 April 2014:
