The Church of Ireland Church and Society Commission (CASC) was established by General Synod in 2013 as a successor to the Board for Social Theology in Action and the Church in Society Committee.
The mission of CASC is to provide oversight and direction of the Church’s work in respect of social theology in action. As such, it seeks to undertake the following functions:
In order to further these two functions, the Commission seeks relationships with other groups within and beyond the Church of Ireland. It may also be appropriate from time to time for the Commission to refer matters to other bodies in the Church of Ireland or to consult with parallel bodies in other Churches.
The Commission’s area of interest includes (but is not limited to) health and social care, medical ethics, public policy, political issues, poverty, family support, the environment, and community relations in Northern Ireland.
