Australia Faith and Unity Commission in encouraging member churches to take positive steps towards a more visible unity; and therefore urges The Anglican Church of Australia, as part of the whole Church of God, to adopt where appropriate the following:
(i) that major decisions be made only after consulting other member churches of the National Council of
Churches in Australia by seeking their wisdom, by involving them in the process of moving towards resolution of such matters, and by inviting representation within the forums of our Church, such as General Synod, Standing Committee and pertinent commissions when such matters are under debate;
(ii) that dioceses negotiate with other Churches for shared ministry where appropriate, and take the
necessary action in their own life to make possible the appropriate recognition of such shared ministry;
(iii) that dioceses devise a mechanism within their own structures whereby no new plant would be
established without consulting with at least one member church of the National Council of Churches in Australia.
