The Synod agreed to a review of the Church of England's national governance structures in December 2019. The report was published in 2021 and the Synod agreed to invite the Archbishops and the Church Commissioners to engage with stakeholders on the report.

a. ask the Synod to support a process of engagement with stakeholders on the proposals that were made in the GRG report. b. ask the Synod to consider and approve legislation in order to give effect to those proposals that involve legislative change.

This will include extensive consultation and engagement to make sure that the proposal is informed by the wider Church, and that it is informed by the opinions of Synod members.

9. The Synod should engage with the report to help the Church be more effective in making Christ known to the nation.
