That this General Synod notes the report of the Ministry Commission and in particular the comments and data relating to the ageing profile of Anglican clergy and the conclusion “that there is a looming crisis that will deeply affect this church within the next five years”, and requests Standing Committee to communicate this report to every appropriate Diocesan officer or committee for their serious consideration and practical response.

Further that this General Synod request the Ministry Commission to do further research on this matter and bring its report to the next meeting of this Synod.
