Wakefield Diocese calls for theological debate about Church of England structure

The Wakefield diocesan synod has called for a “theologically informed debate” about the “organisational structures of the Church of England”, amid concern at the processes being followed by the Dioceses Commission.

Opening a debate at last week’s meeting of the synod in Halifax, the Bishop of Pontefract, the Rt Revd Tony Robinson, emphasised that the motion was not intended to “try to scupper what is happening in the Dioceses Commission proposal”. He said that the C of E needed to “rethink its purpose and structure”.
