The Ninth General Synod, Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui

The Ninth General Synod of the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui will be held from 12 June to 16 June 2022. In view of the fact that the daily confirmed Covid cases in Hong Kong still number in the hundreds and can be erratic, and that a several-day-long meeting attended by over a hundred participants may pose infection risk, the Standing Committee of the General Synod resolved in its 10th meeting that the general meeting of the Ninth General Synod will be conducted on the Zoom platform, and the elections in relation to the Ninth General Synod will be held before the general meeting on Sunday, 5 June 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. All members should vote in person at a polling station designated by the General Synod on the voting day.

Later on, the Handbook and the Report of the Ninth General Synod will be emailed to you and delivered to your parish or missionary church for your collection. You will be notified by the Business Committee of the arrangements for the voting to be held on 5 June, the points to note and the rules for joining the general meeting by video conferencing. The following documents are enclosed with this letter:

(1) Member credential (to be presented at a polling station on the voting day)

(2) The member directory of the Ninth General Synod

(3) The list of nominees for election prepared by the Nomination Committee

(4) A nomination form (to be submitted by 18 May when nomination closes if a member would like to propose any candidates)

Thank you for your attention, and please remember the Ninth General Synod in your prayers.

Yours sincerely,

The Revd Canon Peter Douglas KOON
General Secretary - The 8th General Synod
