The Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda
In February 2016, the PCC ratified the Statement of Needs and Theological Conviction under the House of Bishops’ Declaration:
'We reaffirm our desire to flourish within the life and structures of the Church of England, in accordance with the Five Guiding Principles set out in the House of Bishops’ Declaration, and our commitment to Christ’s mission in the Diocese of Rochester. We recognize the diocesan bishop and other bishops of this Diocese as the true and lawful holders of their offices, and wish to maintain the highest degree of communion with them that is consistent with the theological convictions that underlie our Resolution.'
We are therefore affiliated to The Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda, and more information can be found on the Society's website:
This is our 'official' position, but we do, of course, recognise that the individual views of members of our ministry team and/or congregation may differ, and ALL are equally welcome. No divergence from this 'official' position will, however, be made without full consideration and consultation.
