Papers from the ACL Diocesan financial priorities conference

In October 2011, the Sydney Synod discussed a draft Statement of Funding Principles and Priorities proposing far-reaching changes to diocesan funding. These changes would also impact parishes.

The Synod resolved to invite members to ‘provide comments about the draft Statement to the Diocesan Secretary’ (by 14 March).

On 18th February 2012, the Anglican Church League held a conference at St. Andrew’s Cathedral to help interested parties think through the issues and make their own submissions.

Here are some of the papers presented on the day (we will be adding others as they become available). Each paper is the personal view of the author. Click the link for a PDF file.

  1. Canon Bruce Ballantine Jones wrote this paper, which was distributed as a discussion-starter before the Conference.
  2. ACL President Dr Mark Thompson spoke on Theological Integrity.
  3. Rector of Neutral Bay, Craig Roberts, spoke on Financial Perspectives on Draft Synod Funding Priorities.
