Theological Colloquium on Synodality in Africa (TCS) is being held in Nairobi. Organised by the African Synodality Initiative (ASI).

Through the African Synodality Initiative (ASI), a mixed group of African theologians and scholars have written reflections based on the 10 themes of the Synod on Synodality (2021–2023).

This group has convened for a Theological Colloquium on Synodality in Africa (TCS) in Nairobi on 9–11 March 2022 to further the reflection and propose a vision of synodality based on characteristics and dimensions of synodality from an African perspective.

The participants will develop a single statement on synodality for the 2023 synod to be submitted to the General Secretariat for Synod of Bishops.

The African Synodality Initiative (ASI) is based at the Jesuit Conference of Africa and Madagascar (JCAM). ASI aims to enrich the synodal process of “journeying together” as the pilgrim and missionary People of God, in partnership with the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA), and to create and develop resources that will enable the local churches in Africa to engage fruitfully and constructively in this synodal process.
