Diocesan Canons, Resolutions and Standing Orders 

The 2017 Manual of Diocesan Canons, Standing Resolutions and Standing Orders of the Anglican Diocese of Wellington govern Diocesan life, along with the Provincial Code of Canons of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.

Please note that the Administration Handbook is currently undergoing revision and is unavailable.  If you have any queries, please contact the Anglican Centre directly on 04 472 1057 or email karen@wn.ang.org.nz.  

The Administration Handbook draws its being from these two Codes of Canons, and provides the guidance and process that enable the Church to function and minister appropriately. In the event of a conflict between the Diocesan or Provincial Canons and the Administration Handbook, then the Canons prevail.
