Resolution 56

The Anglican Communion - Provincial Organisation

  1. The successive stages at which a newly founded diocese can be entrusted with greated responsibility, whether for legislation and general government, or for the election of its bishop, should be determined by the provincial authorities or the Archbishop of Canterbury (as the case may be) in consultation with the bishop.
  2. Where the appointment of a bishop still remains with the provincial authorities or the Archbishop of Canterbury, it is generally desirable that the diocese should in some way be consulted before such appointment is made.
