Synod Contact

Synods are our regional administrative groupings of churches. There are 13 Synods in the United Reformed Church, each with their own groups of local churches and people of contact.

If you’re unsure of what Synod you fall into, or would just like the contact details for your CYDO (Children’s & Youth Development Officer), this is the place to be.

And before you ask, no. The Synod number doesn’t rank which Synod is the best to the worse, they’re just there purely as a reference.

Below we’ve included the CYDO’s name and email address for your records. If you’d like to see a full list of information about all of the Synod’s, feel free to check out this link here, which takes you to the main URC website.
