The purpose of these three scholarship funds is to provide financial support to those young Christians wishing to or currently pursuing a post-secondary education. All funds are administered by a Scholarship Committee appointed by the Eastern Synod Council. This financial support is available for the 2022-2023 academic year. Below is a list of scholarship funds that, subject to available funding, are open for qualified candidates to apply.
Effective November 1, 2021, all employees, contractors, volunteers and visitors to the Eastern Synod Office will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.
Paper, electronic or QR versions of government issued proof of vaccination will be accepted.
This policy is aligned with the employer’s general duty under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to take every reasonable precaution to protect its workers (broadly defined) and the responsibility to assess the workplace for risks, including that of COVID-19 transmission.
This policy is applied in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code, Occupational Health and Safety Act and any other applicable legislation.
The Synod Office Team has now returned to in-office working patterns.
We welcome guests and visitors by appointment only.
We appreciate your ongoing willingness to contact the Synod Office prior to visiting.

I am so proud of our church, and the resilience, creativity and faithfulness with which each of you have navigated this long period of pandemic.Read more →
