A new set of Church Representation Rules will come into force on 1st January 2020.
The new Rules aim to simplify local church governance and enable parishes to adapt the rules to best serve ministry and mission in their contexts
In addition, the new Rules are also designed:
• to be compliant with recent data protection legislation
• to provide for electronic communication
• to ensure better representation of mission initiatives in the Church’s structures
• to enable PCCs to do business by correspondence.
While many of the principles of the previous rules remain much of the detail has been simplified and there have also been some significant changes.
