That General Synod recognises a substantial decline in attendances over the last 10 years in the Church nationally and requests Standing Committee, when dealing with strategic issues, to arrange a consultation with all incumbents of Anglican parishes which have at least doubled in average weekly attendance in the 5 years between 1991 and 1996 or 1996 and 2001, as measured by the National Church Life Survey, in order that advice may be offered to Standing Committee on strategic issues.
