Section II.3 - Companion Dioceses

Resolution II.3

Companion Dioceses

This Conference;

  1. notes that many dioceses in the Anglican Communion have not as yet been able to establish companion relationships;
  2. believes that the time has come for significant new initiatives in encouraging all dioceses to develop companion relationships across provincial boundaries, as part of the process of developing the cross-cultural nature of the communion;
  3. believes that, in addition to the structures administered through Partners in World Mission and the Anglican Communion Office, dioceses should be encouraged to take initiatives in sharing information, contact and exchange.
  4. accordingly resolves: that each diocese of the Communion should, by the time of the next Lambeth Conference, have made a serious effort to identify one or more dioceses as a companion, in formal and informal ways.
