The Mission Society of
Saint Wilfrid and Saint Hilda
Is a company of believers led by bishops and loyal to the
Church of England and her catholic heritage who are committed to
a bold proclamation of Jesus Christ as Lord through:
- A lively ministry of preaching and teaching
- A careful and creative celebration of the Sacraments
- Pastoral care that extends from the local congregation to the nation
- A working with others of goodwill in the Church and beyond to build a society that reflects the values of the Kingdom of God
- Bishops, priests and deacons consistent with the tradition of the Church, East and West
- The creation for the sake of the whole Church of an ecclesial community that is both loyal to the traditions of the Church of England and yet, because of the clear difference of views about the ordination of women, has its own bishops with jurisdiction and so a guaranteed sacramental and missional life
- Continuing to work with urgency for the unity of the Church consistent with the prayer and purpose of Jesus, and as reflected in the ARCIC process.
Membership of The Society is open to parishes, institutions,
existing organisations and to individuals who are:
- Committed to its aims
- Committed to pray for The Society and its leaders
- Committed to active participation in the overall mission of the Church of England
- Committed to a personal Rule of Life, including the active service of those in need
- Committed to urge those in authority to provide a structured provision with jurisdiction for those who remain committed to the Church of England but are unconvinced that it has the authority to admit women to the episcopate or presbyterate.
