Church of England advertising for your involvement

The 10 May 1998 edition of various English newspapers carried an advertisement that we have reproduced below. Our thinking is that they paid good money to have it distributed, and by reproducing it below we are distributing it just a bit farther, without it costing them a widow's mite. The men pictured are (left to right) the Most Reverend and Right Honourable David Hope, Archbishop of York, Primate of England, and Metropolitan, and the Most Reverend and Right Honourable George Leonard Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury, Primate of All England, and Metropolitan.

The Church of England into the 21st Century

The Church of England is reforming its central decision-making structures to meet the needs of the Church and nation.

At its heart will be the new Archbishops' Council. You (or someone you know) may be an ideal Appointed Member - our nearest equivalent to a non-executive director. Some members will be elected from General Synod, some will be appointed from the wider community.

The Archbishops are looking especially for people who are already making a significant contribution in their field. You will have a lively Christian faith and a commitment to the Church of England and its mission. Applications are invited, irrespective of age, gender or background.

It is not as far-fetched an idea as you might think.

Ring 0171 340 0217 and we will send you more information.
Closing date for receipt of applications: 5 June 1998.

Note carefully that what is being proposed is the Archbishops' Council and not the Archbishop's Council.
