A new platform for Catholic reform

 bringing together a global, lay-led Christian

network of groups for transformational change.


With Spirit Unbounded, Root & Branch invite you to


for a hybrid live-and-online week event

alongside the Bishops’ Synod on Synodality.


is packed with speakers, activists, people who get things done. Headline names, dozens of others you've never heard of, but will be glad you did.

Times of sorrow, times of sharing. Times of grieving for the Church we love, times of telling it as it is. Times of change.... Time for the emerging church, and music and festival!

8 - 14th Oct 2023 online all week
13 & 14th Oct, live and online, Rome and Bristol UK.

What's Spirit Unbounded?
Spirit Unbounded is a new international platform brought together by Root & Branch with our Companions, reforming groups that've come together to bring about change. See them here.

99+% of us have no say in our own Church. We're aghast at abuse and exclusion. By sharing a common platform, we nurture  the emerging church. One that's safe, inclusive and just. One that lives by the teachings of Jesus. One that prays.

The world's Bishops are gathering this October for their XVI Synod in Rome, to discuss our own worldwide responses to the Synod on Synodality. Will they truly be listening to what our Synod responses have tried to tell them? 

HRCC hears what we are saying!
