The Annual Diocesan Synod was held on Saturday 18th April 2009 at (by kind permission) the Methodist Central Hall, Storey's Gate, Westminster. The Day began with Pontifical High Mass for Low Saturday at 12 noon. Bishop Mead was celebrant and the Deans of the North and South were Subdeacon and Deacon respectively. Before the service Bishop Mead received Mr Howard Marsh into the full Communion of the ACC from the Church of England and then created The Revd Donald Walker Oblate/OSB, an Honorary Canon of the Diocese of the United Kingdom. Bishop Mead preached and the service was uplifting and inspiring. After lunch delegates gathered in the Broadbent Room for the Synod business meeting.
