Sir: In response to recent concerns within the Church of England, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have appointed a commission under my chairmanship to review the central policy- making and resource machinery of the church.

We are asked to make recommendations for improving its effectiveness in supporting the ministry and mission of the church to the nation as a whole. We shall be looking at the overall organisational structure of the church and at whether work is being performed at the right level.

The commission would be glad to receive written evidence from any individual or organisation who takes an interest in these issues, whether from within or from outside the church of England.

Yours faithfully,


Lambeth Palace

London, SE1
