Does the legislation governing diocesan and parochial structures assist the development of Christian communities in a rapidly changing national and local context? Does it enable new initiatives to support the Church's mission and ministry to the nation? This major report was commissioned and endorsed by the Archbishops' Council and produced by a Review Group chaired by Professor Peter Toyne. The Group was determined that its work should be rooted in a sound ecclesiological understanding of the issues and the observations of their theological consultant, the Revd Dr Malcolm Brown, permeate and punctuate the Report. The Group concluded that, while dioceses were best placed to determine what might be the best fit for their mission and ministry needs, a simpler and enabling national legislative framework was still needed.
