    Mission Synod 2023

    This year, the 40 or so delegates from four continents will meet online. From Thursday, June 29, 2023 to July 01, 2023, they will set the course for Mission 21 for 2023 and the following years. The committee sets the framework for the organization's work, but also discusses the specific situations and concerns of the people in the partner countries.

    We cordially invite you to the final public mission service on July 02, 2023. You can get all the details from Maria Reiss via synode@mission-21.org.

    Mission Synod 2022

    The international mission synod is the highest decision-making body of Mission 21, with partner churches and organizations from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America represented. The first international mission synod took place in 2004 and since 2013 the delegates have met annually. The body sets the framework for the organization's work in each case. However, the delegates also discuss the concrete situations and concerns of the people in the partner countries.

    We were able to hold the Synod 2022 as guests of the Cantonal Church of Graubünden. We were happy about an inspiring week with enriching encounters and diverse exchange.

    Mission Synod 2021

    Around 40 delegates and guests from four continents met online from Thursday, June 10, to Saturday, June 12, and set the course for Mission 21 in 2022. The burning issues revolved around the effects of the past pandemic year on the people in Mission 21's 20 partner countries. The various statements from the respective continental assemblies impressively explained how existing problems have worsened and what new challenges Mission 21 and its partner churches and organizations must face. Whether in Africa, Asia or Latin America, the pandemic has led to more poverty and also to more violence against women and children.

    The pandemic once again prevented a meeting in Switzerland. While last year's agenda was handled via email communication, this year the delegates met for the first time via video chat for the 2021 Mission Synod. The synod week was brought to a festive close with a service on Sunday, June 13, which was also streamed online.

    Mission Synod 2020

    The synod was planned for June 12-13 and the mission festival for June 14, 2020. All events were canceled or postponed to the digital level due to the Corona pandemic. The delegates from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America passed the necessary resolutions digitally for the first time. The annual financial statements and the annual report were approved, and the strategy and the framework budget - with the planned savings for 2021 - were approved. The synod elected a new board member. Gerhard Bütschi-Hassler from the canton of Aargau was newly elected to replace Kurt Kägi (AI), who resigned. The Synod 2021 was also scheduled for mid-June. The implementation should be aligned with any restrictions due to the Corona pandemic.
