The General Synod notes the report of the National Superannuation and Retirement Council and the recommendation that the work of the Council would now best be carried forward by means of a small informal working group.
The Synod notes with appreciation the work of this Council in facilitating the coordination and development of superannuation for church workers.
The Synod authorises the General Secretary to convene a working group at least once each two years to review benefits and contributions in the light of current community expectations and conditions. This group shall include the Secretary/Manager of the Anglican Superannuation Fund and the Secretary/Manager of the Sydney Diocesan Superannuation Fund, and other whom that group may judge will advance the review process. The Group will report to the Standing Committee after each of its meetings, and the most recent report of the working group shall constitute the basis of a report to the meeting of General Synod.
