Resolution 17 - New Dioceses

Resolution 17

New Dioceses

The Conference urges that, when a new diocese is created,

1. adequate financial support should be underwritten by the member Churches concerned, and/or by the Partners in Mission of the new diocese, to insure against unforeseen financial difficulties;

2. adequate provision should be made for the stipend of the bishop, preferably through the creation of an episcopal endowment fund;

3. when, owing to unforeseen circumstances, a new diocese is faced with financial problems and deficits, it should be aided financially by the member Church concerned and/or by the Partners in Mission of the new diocese;

4. these matters be referred for the consideration of the Anglican Consultative Council at its earliest convenience.
