(2)Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1) the bishop’s mission order or supplementary instrument may make provision—

(a)for the stipends, remuneration, pensions or housing and other expenses of any persons exercising functions under the bishop’s mission order;

(b)for any other offices or functions which such persons may hold or perform in conjunction with their functions under the order;

(c)for the replacement, where necessary, of any persons or bodies exercising functions under the order by other persons or bodies;

(d)for the organisation, governance and financing of the mission initiative including the management and control of any property used by those exercising functions under the order;

(e)for any measures required for the protection of children, young persons and other vulnerable persons and for health and safety and insurance;

(f)for relationships between persons involved with the mission initiative and persons who have the cure of souls within any area to which the bishop’s mission order relates and with other churches, institutions and religious organisations; and

(g)after consulting the Visitor and such other persons or body as the bishop or bishops thinks or think fit, for representation of persons to whom the order relates on such deanery synod as he thinks or they think fit in accordance with a scheme made by the diocesan synod of the diocese in which the deanery is situated.

(3)Where a co-operation provision is included or is to be included in a bishop’s mission order, and without prejudice to section 80(6) above, the bishop or bishops, as the case may be, and the Visitor shall discharge all their functions under this Part after consultation with the appropriate authority of each Church or religious organisation which is to participate in the local ecumenical project, or which is otherwise concerned.

(4)The bishop or bishops may vary any bishop’s mission order or any supplementary instrument by a further order or instrument but, in the case of an order, shall not do so except after consulting the mission and pastoral committee or committees of the diocese or dioceses concerned and the leader or leaders, the Visitor, any relevant person having the cure of souls and any other person or body which he thinks or they think fit and section 80(8) or (11) or subsection (3) shall apply if any variation relates to any such provision as is referred to in any of those subsections.

(5)The bishop or bishops may revoke any bishop’s mission order and any supplementary instrument by a further order or instrument but, in the case of an order, shall not do so without carrying out the like consultation as is referred to in subsection (4).

(6)Any leader shall have the right to make written or oral representations (or both) to the mission and pastoral committee or committees in respect of any order varying or revoking a bishop’s mission order and any such order may include provision in respect of the management or disposal of property and of any other matters for which it is, in the opinion of the bishop or bishops, expedient to make provision.

(7)Any bishop’s mission order or supplementary instrument shall specify its duration, but, subject to section 83, no such order, taken together with any order varying it, shall extend beyond the period of five years from the date on which it is made.

(8)Any order under section 80 or this section and any instrument under this section shall be signed by the bishop or bishops, as the case may be, or by a person authorised by him or them and shall also (except in the case of an order or instrument varying or revoking an order or instrument) be signed by the leader or leaders and contain a declaration by the leader or leaders of acceptance of the terms of the order or instrument.

(9)In section 80 “ecumenical co-operation” means co-operation in matters affecting the ministry, congregational life or buildings of the Churches concerned and “local ecumenical project” has the same meaning as in the Church of England (Ecumenical Relations) Measure 1988 (1988 No. 3).
