Resolution to restructure the Archdeaconries

WHEREAS the Diocese of Christ the King, as part of the Anglican Communion, and following the example of Christ himself, has always been commited to inclusiveness in its ministry;

WHEREAS the focus of such inclusiveness has traditionally been language, gender,  race and age;

AND WHEREAS we believe that our ministry as a Diocese would be strengthened by a geographical inclusiveness;

THIS SYNOD respectfully urges the Bishop, in consultation with his Chapter, to restructure (and name?) the four Archdeaconries of the Diocese into inclusive and integrated regions, so that  former suburban congregations in the northnof the Diocese are paired with "township congregations" in the south.

 

PROPOSED: Rev D Mahlonoko

SECONDED: Rev R Greville
