Down & Dromore Council for Mission

The Diocese of Down and Dromore has a missional calling and the Council for Mission makes a valuable contribution to the expression of that calling under the following remit:

  • to stimulate within the diocese the priority and urgency of mission
  • to work to ensure the quality and complementary nature of mission at home and throughout the world
  • to maintain close relationships with other bodies concerned with mission, including the General Synod Council for Mission and the Association of Missionary Societies
  • to promote effective models of mission and evangelism;
  • to encourage programmes of renewal;
  • to initiate and encourage enterprises and links which will further the mission of the Church; and
  • to foster interest in members of the Church of Ireland serving in Ireland and other parts of the world.

Current membership of the Council for Mission is downloadable as a PDF here 

The diocese has formal links with a number of Mission Partners, although we recognise that many parishes have specific short–term links with others.
