Our Response to GS-2222

The Church of England is unquestionably entering a period of considerable change. Diminishing resources, both human and financial, mean that it is thought necessary to look at structures and future ministry, including the role and provision of stipendiary clergy. The Church is currently engaged in formulating a vision and strategy for the 2020s and beyond. One of the outcomes is perceived to be a need for greater simplicity in the organisation of the Church, and to introduce greater flexibility in the way organisational structures may be changed. To this end there is currently a formal consultation as to the ways in which the Mission and Pastoral Measure 2011 might be changed to permit this to happen. The proposals are contained in General Synod Paper GS -2222. These include, for example, the creation of units other than the parish and the possible closure of churches. The English Clergy Association has taken part in the consultation and our response is contained below.
