Church Representation Rules is a vital tool for all those involved in parochial, diocesan and national Church governance.
This Revised Reprint includes amendments made by the following enactments passed since the 2020 edition was first published: the Church Representation Rules (Amendment) Resolution 2019, the Church Representation Rules (Amendment) Resolution 2020 and the Church Representation Rules (Amendment) Resolution 2021.
The 2020 edition presents an entirely new text of the Church Representation Rules, replacing the previous Rules established in 1969 and amended numerous times over the following fifty years. It aims to simplify local church governance and enable parishes to adapt the rules to best serve ministry and mission in their contexts.
In addition, the Rules are also designed:
- to be compliant with recent data protection legislation
- to provide for electronic communication
- to ensure better representation of mission initiatives in the Church's structures
- to enable PCCs to do business by correspondence.
This volume includes a full introduction to the Rules and explanatory notes highlighting the new provisions together with a comprehensive index.
