On February 28th, 2021 the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador said goodbye to Synod Office at 19 King’s Bridge Road in St. John’s, and said hello to Church House at 22 Church Hill, also in St. John’s.
Moving is always a huge undertaking. Moving involves both physical and emotional work. As the staff physically packed up the building, stories were shared of past memories that brought both laughter and a tear. Stories of former staff, monumental diocesan decisions, embracing new and changing technologies—all part of the institutional memory of Synod Office.
Now we have moved to Church House—a new home for the workings of the diocese and a place to form new memories.
