Bishop Price seeks readers’ views

02 November 2006


From the Bishop of Bath & Wells
Sir, — To ensure continuing and effective support for the Church of England’s work and mission in the coming years, the Archbishops have set up a Resourcing Mission Group, which would like to hear the views of your readers.

The group’s terms of reference are: “to identify achievable ways in which the financial and other resources of the Church of England might be best deployed (a) to secure their equitable distribution across the Church and (b) to facilitate local mission objectives and plans”.

This review builds on the General Synod’s consideration earlier this year of Future Use of the Church Commissioners’ Funds (GS 1529).  The current review responds to the wish that the important issues raised in that report receive further attention in a broader context. It provides an opportunity to consider some fundamental questions about the use and distribution of resources in the Church in the medium and long term. The intention is to bring a report to the Synod in July 2005.

The review group is anxious to listen to the views of all parts of the Church. I am writing now to give anyone who is interested the opportunity to comment on the task facing the review group, and the issues to be explored. Views should be sent to me by 31 December 2004 at the address below, or by email to resourcing.mission@c-of-e.org.uk.
