Related Groups

A Related Group is an organization set up outside the diocesan structure recognized by Synod or Diocesan Council to have aims and objectives shared by the Diocese.

The Diocese does not accept responsibility for the actions of these groups (since they operate in accordance with their own Constitutions and policies) except insofar as the Diocese may have attached conditions upon the granting of recognition or the allocations of diocesan monies.

For more information on Related Groups, please contact the Director for Mission & Ministry Development.
