Mission and Pastoral Measure 2011
The Mission and Pastoral Measure 2011 consolidates in a single
Measure (with some minor corrections and improvements) the Pastoral
Measure 1983, a number of subsequent enactments that have
supplemented or amended it, and parts of the Dioceses, Pastoral and
Mission Measure 2007.
There was a delay in bringing the Mission and Pastoral
Measure 2011 into effect. The delay was caused by the need to have
the Eclesiastical Offices (Consequential Provisions) Order 2012 in
place first, because it makes certain necessary corrections to the
text of the 2011 Measure (find out more under Related Documents -
Title Page). That Order was amended by Synod in February
2012 and came into force on 1 July 2012. The Mission and
Pastoral Measure 2011 was brought into effect on the same date.
The Mission and Pastoral Measure 2011 Code of Recommended
Practice Volumes 1 (Pastoral Reorganisation) and 2 (Dealing with
Consecrated Church Buildings) was published in July 2012. This
guidance is found under the related link on this page.
Over Summer 2012, we held 2 conferences in London and York on
the 2011 Measure, attended by over 100 diocesan staff. Handouts and
presentations from those conferences are available under the
related link on this page.
Under Related Documents you will find links to the 2011 Measure
and the 2012 Order alongside a title page which explains the impact
of the 2012 Order on the Measure.
