This new edition of the Guidelines for the Professional Conduct of the Clergy is a revised and extended version of the first edition, which was published in 2003 by the Convocations of the Clergy.
It is not a formal code of conduct, but a reflection by the Convocations on the words of the Ordinal, addressed to the clergy at the time of their ordination to the ministry of the Church. It draws on the wide experience of the clergy who belong to the General Synod, with contributions from the House of Bishops and the House of Laity. The Guidelines are offered as a means of sharing the fruits of accrued wisdom and experience with colleagues, especially those beginning a new life as ordained ministers, and with all engaged in the mission and ministry of the Church.
This new edition takes account of significant developments since 2003, including the publication of a new Ordinal, the new Clergy Discipline Measure, new terms of service for the clergy via Common Tenure, and most recently the comprehensive work which is being undertaken throughout the Church with regard to Safeguarding.
