Council for Mission

The Church of Ireland Council for Mission was established by the General Synod in 2004 with the following objectives:

  • To stimulate within the Church of Ireland a sense of the priority and urgency of mission;
  • To advocate the equality and complementary nature of mission at home and throughout the world;
  • To maintain close relationships with other bodies concerned with mission and in particular with Diocesan Boards of Mission, the Association of Mission Societies and mission and overseas development agencies;
  • To promote effective models of mission and evangelism;
  • To encourage programmes of renewal;
  • To initiate and encourage enterprises which will further the mission of the Church;
  • To allocate funds from St Patrick's Memorial Fund and other funds at its disposal;
  • To foster interest in members of the Church of Ireland serving in other parts of the world;
  • To facilitate mission interchange visits to and from Ireland;
  • To encourage reflection on the theology of mission.

Membership of the Council consists of two bishops, six members elected triennially by the General Synod, one representative from each diocese, one representative from each of various organisations and up to six co-opted members.
