Prologue
The resolution of the Rural Deaneries of Peace River and Grande Prairie suggesting a Commission on Rural Work was presented by the Bishop of Athabasca.
"The Rural Deanery of Peace River along with representatives of the Rural Deanery of Grande Prairie in the Diocese of Athabasca respectively suggest and request that the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada meeting in Toronto in September 1943 should appoint a Commission on Rural Church Work in Canada with special reference to the Church of England.
1. We would humbly suggest that this Commission should consist of three Bishops, three Priests and three laymen to be appointed by the General Synod in session this Fall, with power given to this Commission to increase its numbers by additional members, the same to be approved by the Primate. The Primate and the Secretaries of the three Boards of the General Synod would be ex officio members of this commission.
2. This Commission should give immediate attention to the formulation of plans for a survey of Rural Life and rural conditions in Canada with special reference to the ministrations of our Church in these rural areas, including the problem of education in rural areas, the important matter of the use of leisure in these areas, the home life, opportunities for advanced training of talented and ambitious young people, the stipends of the Clergy, the condition of the Rectories in which they live, the problem of transportation as they serve their people, the special training of clergy for rural work, etc, etc.
3. This Commission should examine carefully the great and important problem which deals with the place of the farm in our economic life, the financial returns for the labours of the farmer, the conditions under which he lives, etc, etc. This is one of the most important problems facing Canadian life today.
4. This Commission should have the power to co-operate with other Christian bodies within the boundaries of the Dominion as they study these and kindred problems.
5. Other nations and other parts of our Empire throughout the Church have given and are giving special attention to this vast and extremely important subject. Our Sister Church in the United States held its first Rural Church Conference in 1923. In 1924 a Division of Rural Work of the National Council was organized and a full-time secretary of Rural Work appointed. A special publication was issued regularly - The Rural Messenger. In 1925 the General Convention of the Episcopal Church appointed standing Committees on Rural Work. In 1928 a Joint Committee on Rural Work was appointed and in 1931, it gave a printed report which is a most valuable document.
In the USA the National Roman Catholic Rural Life Conference has been held annually for twenty years and this Church is giving very special attention to this Ecclesiastical and National problem.
In England at the beginning of this year of 1943, the Church of England along with other Church bodies has instituted a Rural Reconstruction Inquiry. This movement was inspired by the Oxford and Edinburgh Conferences. It is undertaken because the Council believes that all attempts at the social reconstruction of England will be finally void without a revival of the life of the countryside. This involves an awakening of interest among country folk in the needs of the family, the problems of industry, the claims of culture and the place of religion.
The ultimate purposes of the effort are said to be two: first, to secure that as much thought and energy are applied to the problems of villages as to those of towns; secondly, to "aid the Churches to relate their message and activities more closely to the needs and opportunities of rural communities."

A letter was received, addressed to General Synod, from the Presidents of the National A.Y.P.A. and the National Kairos, of the United Church, speaking jointly for the Youth Assembly 1965. Unfortunately, the correspondence, dealing with their "separation at the Lord's Table," was not received until several days after General Synod had adjourned. The General Secretary sent copies to the Committees on Christian Unity and the Church Universal, and Church Relations, and to the G.B.R.E.
It was learned that the Chairman of the Committee on Christian Unity had replied carefully and sympathetically.
The deep concern of the Council was expressed in the consideration of the correspondence.

That the Report of St. Augustine's College, Canterbury be received. CARRIED
Notes
St. Augustine's, Canterbury
Nature and Function
In 1952, St. Augustine's College at Canterbury became the central College of the Anglican Communion. The former warden, Canon C.K. Sansbury, described the nature and function of his College in the Church Times of November the 4th, 1960. It may be well to summarize his concept of its purpose.
He pointed out that in an earlier age the leadership of the Anglican Church in Asia and Africa was in the hands of Missionaries from the older Churches. Leaders were sent out from the English Missionary Societies and native clergy held only subordinate positions. As political stature has grown, so has ecclesiastical stature. Former missions have become self-governing provinces and national Churches. Asians and Africans have been given leadership and the links with the Mother Church in England have grown thinner. The Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States has assumed a new and large importance in the Anglican Communion, providing recently not only large financial support but a host of fresh ideas. To quote an Australian Bishop "England gave us the faith, but American gave us the words."
In this changing situation the Anglican Communion needs new strong links to hold it together. The Lambeth Conference with its Executive Officer Bishop Bayne is one, the Anglican Congress is a second, St. Augustine's Canterbury is an important third. This college welcomes priests and students from the whole Anglican Communion, as long as they are approved by their Bishop or by a Regional Selection Committee. The type of student is indicated by the following partial list of present students, "a dean of a South African Cathedral, an American and two Australian University Chaplains, the Warden of St. Michael's Seminary at Seoul, an African Archdeacon, an a number of parish priests." Eight who studied in the last eight years are now Bishops.
College Programme.
1. Worship.
There is a daily Eucharist and other regular offices. Priests celebrate in turn using their own rite.
2. Study.
This centres upon:
(a) Bible
(b) Christian Doctrine
(c) General Survey of the Anglican Communion
(d) Pastoralia
3. The Common Life
"Each academic year means a fresh experiment in international, inter-racial, Christian Community living."
The Canadian Relationship With The College
There has been in the main a three fold Canadian contribution. Each year the Canadian Church contributes a sum of money to the maintenance of the College. From time to time Canadians have accepted invitations to serve temporarily on the staff of the College. Canadian students have attended the college in varying, but usually small, numbers. This year I believe that only one Canadian is in residence.
There is a problem here. We are not sending enough men, and probably not always the right men. In one early year of the College's operation there were three Canadians all on full scholarships, so that Canada was costing the College more than she was contributing. As a result, it has been arranged by the Canadian Church that no Canadian priest shall go unless (a) He has been approved by the Primate as well as his Diocesan Bishop, and (b) he has agreed to accept no financial help from the College. The present unsystematic arrangement is not working well. The Canadian Church and the whole Anglican Communion would benefit from more Canadian links at Canterbury. We need more students there, and the Primate cannot know all of the men who perhaps ought to go. Our selection method is haphazard and we have no organized system of financial help for students.
Subjects For Our Consideration
(1) A selection committee.
Canon Sansbury has himself suggested the appointment of a Canadian selection Committee for our priest students. The American Church has such a selection committee, with the Dean of General Theological Seminary as Chairman and the secretary of the Overseas Department of the National Council as secretary. How can we best choose Canadian priests ? Ought we to establish a Canadian Committee for St. Augustine's Canterbury, perhaps with a Metropolitan as Chairman, the General Secretary of General Synod as Secretary, and a Bishop, a College Professor and Lay member of General synod from each Province as membership ? Ought such a Committee to meet as often as its business requires, but at least annually, when the standing Committee of the General Synod with power to handle all our routine relationships with St. Augustine's ?
To such a Committee might fall the task of actively encouraging Bishops to nominate suitable men as students, instead of leaving the matter to the man himself and this action might promote a steady flow of the right type of men.
(2) The Number of Canadian Students.
Annually six places are allotted to the United States. How many ought we to have ? If we only have one a year, over the years about one eightieth of our men will have been at St. Augustine's -- roughly one to every three Dioceses, which is not adequate either for us to feel the impact of the life of the whole Communion in our Canadian Church, or to inform the rest of the life of the whole Communion in our Canadian Church, or to inform the rest of the Anglican Communion about our special qualities. Would not three a year be a much better number ? This would in time give us about one priest a Diocese on the average who has been at St. Augustine's for an academic year. Perhaps it would be fair to send a man from each of the two eastern ecclesiastical Provinces each year, and one a year from each of the two western Provinces alternately; or you might ask for an allotment of three places per annum and fill them each year from the best candidates available in the Church.
(3) The Type of Student to go.
The College envisages students who are priests between thirty and forty years of age. They should be able men who have already shown considerable promise of leadership, with some experience, so that they can not only absorb the ethos of Anglicanism as represented by the other students, but also interpret the Canadian Church to their fellows. They should be the men who, as a group, will rise to leadership in the Canadian Church a few years after their return from Canterbury.
(4) The Financing of Canadian Students.
In most cases financial help will be necessary for Canadian Students. Certainly nominations ought not to be limited to only those who can afford the cost. What is the current average cost of a year at Canterbury ? Five years ago a priest went from Athabaska, he tells me he lived economically and was helped by a small fee from weekend duty done during term as a part of his education. He estimated his total cost including fares from North-west Canada and back for himself, his wife and his baby son at $2000.00. Of this the Church gave him $500.00 through the Primate, the Diocese gave him $500.00 through gifts from my friends and he paid $1000.00 himself. The cost of living has risen, but Air Fares have considerably decreased, so perhaps an economical couple could still do it on $2000.00. How much of this should be provided by the Church as a whole ? Should this be put into the budget ? Or is it to be handled though the fourth of his cost in its own budget -- perhaps with some contribution through the M.S.C.C. in the case of the Missionary Dioceses ? Might the Provincial Synod Assessment include provision each year for the man from the province concerned ? Perhaps the setting up of a sound financial programme might be among the first tasks of the Canadian Committee for St. Augustine's if one is formed.
If we can find satisfactory answers to these questions and provide simple but effective machinery, we shall be making a useful contribution through St. Augustine's to the whole Anglican Communion, and at the same time deriving great benefit for our own Church in ensuring a steady flow of leaders who are aware both of the values and the needs of our whole Communion, and have warm personal ties with leaders in its other components.
