20. The recommended form of the resolution to be passed by the PCC is as follows:


“This PCC requests, on grounds of theological conviction, that arrangements be made for it in accordance with the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests.”


A PCC which has passed a resolution should send a copy of it to the diocesan bishop, archdeacon, diocesan registrar and registered patron.


The form of words is only a recommendation. In its Advice to PCCs and Parish Priests Forward in Faith recommends a somewhat fuller text for the resolution.
