In January 2012 the papers of the General Convention and its related committees which re–organised the Church following Disestablishment – the separation of the Church from state control – were showcased as part of the RCB Library’s ‘Archive of the Month‘ series.
These document the Church’s evolutionary story at a most challenging time in its history, and reveal the thinking and strategy behind the general and diocesan synodical structures we have inherited today.
The collection includes minute books, resolutions, correspondence, petitions printed and other materials and covers the period 1868–1874.
