Dignity in Church Life – Clergy Illness Policy

In 2015, the General Synod as governing body of the Church of Ireland adopted the Dignity in Church Life Charter which articulates the Church’s commitment to harmonious relationships in Church life with reference to the Christian principles underpinning those relationships.

The General Synod also authorised the Representative Church Body to develop policies in support of the principles outlined in the Charter and to submit these to the Standing Committee for approval.
