Bishops' Mission Orders

Bishop' Mission Orders (BMOs) are made by bishops, as leaders in God's mission in their Diocese.

In making an Order, the bishop endorses and authorises the mission initiative it covers as likely to promote or further the mission of the Church, through fostering or developing a distinctive Christian community.

BMOs can recognise existing mission initiatives or promote fresh expressions of church

Examples my include:

  • A new network congregation for young adults across a town;
  • A revitalisation of an existing congregation in a socially and economically deprived part of a city, built on a partnership bewteen a number of parties and the drawing-in of new resources.
