The study, ‘Models of leadership and organization in Anglican churches in rural Australia’ provides an overview of Anglican rural churches in Australia drawing on the National Church Life Survey 2006. It also focuses on some of the quite different models of leadership and organisation operating in a number of dioceses.
The case studies have sought to capture the stories of individual churches and to examine at depth the particular factors operating in each situation.
The study arises because the Anglican General Synod has recognised the need to develop a church that is ‘mission-shaped’, reaching out to a diversity of contemporary Australian society. The Synod has also recognised the need for a diversity of types of churches.
