That this General Synod recognises the progress made towards the publication of a revised Australian Hymn Book in 1999 as set out in the report “Australian Hymn Book”., Synod reappoints the Anglican representatives on the Editorial Committee and encourages them to complete their work. Synod empowers Standing Committee to fill any vacancies that may arise among the Anglican representatives, it being understood that no expenses are to be charged to General Synod for this work. Synod encourages parishes to examine the revised Australian Hymn Book when it is published with a view to adopting it for use if they judge it to contain the balance of old and new material required to meet their needs.
