Prologue
The Council warmly welcomed newly appointed lay Canon for the Diocese of Toronto, Canon Alice-Jean Finlay. Canon Finlay reflected on her eight years of involvement with the WCC Central Committee. The WCC is a fellowship of churches now 347 in more than 120 countries from virtually all Christian traditions.
During her time on the Committee, Canon Finlay sat through endless committee meetings and did an enormous amount of reading. She enjoyed the meetings, watching the debate and seeing how people from many diverse cultures and parts of Christianity could have deep discussion and make decisions by consensus. A highlight was being part of the Assembly Planning Group. The next meeting of the WCC will be in Porto Alegre, Brazil, February 14-23, 2006. The Primate, the Rev. Canon John Steele and other representatives of the Anglican Church of Canada will attend.
The Primate thanked Canon Finlay for her report and said that she has been an ambassador for the Anglican Church of Canada and has served the church wonderfully.
Text
That the Council of General Synod approved the following amendment to the Constitution of the World Council of Churches:
II Membership
Churches shall be eligible for membership in the fellowship of the World Council of Churches who express their agreement with the Basis upon which the Council is founded and satisfy such criteria as the Assembly or Central Committee may prescribe. The Central Committee shall consider applications for membership according to consensus model of decision making. The application shall be accepted for a specified interim period of participation in the work of the World Council of Churches and for interaction with the local fellowship of member churches. The member churches of the World Council of Churches shall be consulted during the interim period. Following the interim period, the Central Committee shall assess whether a consensus of member churches has developed in favour of the application, in which event the applicant church shall be considered a new member church.
