Commissions

Commissions of the Anglican Communion are official bodies established at the direction of the one of the Instruments: the Anglican Consultative Council, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Primates’ Meeting or the Lambeth Conference. 

 A commission will have a specific mandate for a particular task and operate for a set period of time. It will report to the Instruments.  The chair is chosen by the Archbishop of Canterbury with the agreement of the Secretary General of the Anglican Communion. The members are then nominated by the Secretary General with the agreement of the Archbishop of Canterbury.  They will reflect the breadth of the Communion and the expertise needed for the commission’s task.
