Resolution 53

The Anglican Communion - Provincial Organisation

  1. In view of the many advantages of the organisation of dioceses into provinces and the difficulties and dangers of isolation, the formation of provinces should everywhere be encouraged.
  2. The minimum organisation essential to provincial life is a college or synod of bishops which will act corporately in dealing with questions concerning the faith, order and discipline of the Church.
  3. The minimum number of dioceses suitable to form a province is four.
  4. The balance between provincial authority and diocesan autonomy may vary from province to province according to the constitutions agreed upon in each case.
