The Diocesan Mission and Pastoral Committee (DMPC)

by Michael Ford last modified 07 Jun, 2016 04:50 PM

The Diocesan Mission and Pastoral Committee (DMPC) is established under the Pastoral Measure 1983 and the Mission and Pastoral Measure 2011. Its objectives are to review, as directed by the Bishop or as considered necessary by the Committee, arrangements for pastoral supervision in the Diocese. Bishops Council exercises the legal responsibilities of the DMPC.

There are four Archidiaconal sub-committees, each meets at least three times a year in each of the Episcopal Areas.  These committees come together occasionally for joint meetings in which they can share discussions on matters of interest.

There is a statutory procedure for consultation with interested parties (e.g Incumbents, Parochial Church Council (PCCs) and Patrons of affected parishes) before proposals are passed to the Church Commissioners, who make Pastoral Schemes and Orders.
