From Colonial Chaplaincy to Responsible Governance: the Anglican Church of Australia and Ecclesiology
Church governance has not come easily for the Anglican Church of Australia. First it was part of the state government. Then it had constitutions that had to provide some legal identity and secure tenure of its property. It was not separate from the state. It just had a different relationship with it. But it could not escape Jesus’ foundational truth that his kingdom was not of this world. That truth is especially threatened in our generation, but in a curious way provides some clue to being a church that manifests the character of Jesus’ kingdom.
