THE CELTIC SYNODSM

A fynno Duw, a fydd

1. Members of this synod practice Celtic pre-Nicene Christianity and do not practice, affiliate, associate, or represent any other religious denomination or faith. They reject many of the religious dogmas, doctrines, agendas, and organizational hierarchy introduced into Christianity after the Nicene Council. In addition they reject all pagan, heretical, esoteric, cult, new age, or modern revisionist religious positions, doctrines, and theology.

2. Members are guided by scripture and are to be conservative in doctrine and theology, maintaining a legitimate apostolic succession, and uses the accepted “Celtic” Liturgy. The focus of the Celtic Church is teaching the word of God and not any form or ritualistic expressions.                                                  

 

3. All clergy members of this Synod shall be members of the Military and Religious Order of Culdees.

 

4. After considerable study and review of the infamous Synod of Whitby (664AD) it has been determined by this Synod that Whitby was focused on a political rather theological agenda. Therefore the members of this Synod renounce the positions taken by the Roman Church and the decisions made at Whitby concerning the Celtic Church.  Following the Council of Whitby the early Celtic Church was successfully suppressed with its clergy churches and abbeys ultimately absorbed into the Roman Church, a movement the Celtic Clergy have never voluntarily accepted.    

 

  Celtic Christianity, with its unique theology and traditions became inactive for centuries following the 1300’s but now has re-emerged and offers a form of early Christian worship that many individuals seek.
