Resolution A031

Amendments to the Constitution (Housekeeping)

This resolution was carried.

moved by: The. Ven. Jim Boyles (General Secretary)
seconded by: James Sweeny from the Diocese of Quebec

Note: The mover and the seconder must be members of the General Synod and be present in the House when the resolution is before the synod for debate.


That the Constitution of the General Synod be amended as follows:

  1. Subsection 33(f)(i) by striking out the number 35 in the first line and substituting the number 33;

  2. Subsection 33(f)(ii) by striking out the number 35 in the first line and substituting the number 33;

  3. Subsection 39(a) by deleting paragraph (iii) and renumbering paragraphs (iv) to (vii) to be paragraphs (iii) to (vi);

  4. Section 39 by deleting subsection (d) and re-lettering subsections (e) to (m) to be subsections (d) to (l).

  5. Subsection 42(a) by striking out the number 35 in the second line and substituting the number 33.


Numbers 1, 2 and 5 are housekeeping amendments to correct cross-references between sections in the Constitution.

Numbers 3 and 4 would delete references to the Primate's World Relief and Development Committee as a standing committee of the General Synod. The incorporation of the Fund as a distinct entity with a board of directors obviates the need for the Committee.
