Independent Reviewer addresses Forward in Faith National Assembly

Nov 22, 2016 by

The Independent Reviewer appointed in relation to the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests, Sir Philip Mawer, addressed the Forward in Faith National Assembly, held at St Alban’s, Holborn, on Saturday 19 November 2016. He commented, ‘What the House of Bishops with the endorsement of the General Synod has done in enunciating the Five Principles and establishing a framework of procedures to underpin them is a brave and worthy attempt to model a way for Christians to live with their differences.’

Preaching at the Eucharist, the Bishop of Chichester, the Rt Revd Dr Martin Warner, reminded the Assembly that ‘Scripture provides us with the contours of divine revelation that issue first in worship, but that incite us also to an ethical foundation of moral life’ and that ‘the drama of liturgical worship is one of the great acts of our witness on earth to the reality of heaven’.

Mrs Anne Gray, Projects Officer to the Council of Bishops of The Society, shared her reflections on the process of passing resolutions under the House of Bishops’ Declaration, which has resulted in a 12% increase in the number of parishes under the oversight of bishops of The Society.
