Administration Handbook

The Administration Handbook has been prepared to help people in the Diocese become better informed about its mission, its resources and structures.

The Administration Handbook needs to be read in conjunction with the Provincial Code of Canons of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia and the Manual of Diocesan Canons, Resolutions and Standing Orders of the Anglican Diocese of Wellington.   In the event of a conflict between this Handbook and the Diocesan or Provincial Canons, then the Canons prevail.


A hard copy of the Administration Handbook, together with Diocesan Canons, is available from the Anglican Centre for a cost of $45.00.  Copies of the Provincial Canons are available to Synod Representatives, Clergy and parishes.  Please contact the Anglican Centre for more information.  Email or telephone (04) 472 1057.

You may produce your own hardcopy of this handbook by downloading all the PDF files and printing them. Please refer to the following links for the relevant sections of the handbook. On each section page there is a contents list and there is also an index page which will help you find a particular item.
