Diocesan Synod last Saturday affirmed the paper 'Transforming Presence' which includes the following:
"...stipendiary priests will need to be more episcopal in the way they understand and express their ministry... they will become much more obviously those who have oversight of the ministry of the church in a cluster of rural communities, or in a town or suburb. Their role will be to lead and facilitate ministry in that area, not provide all that ministry themselves. They will, of course, be involved; but their main task will be to animate the ministry of the whole church."
It's been a while, but I'm glad we've got there in the end. Full paper here.
