In making an Order, the bishop endorses and authorises the mission initiative it covers as likely to promote or further the mission of the the Church through fostering or developing a distinctive Christian community.
BMOs can recognise existing mission initiatives or promote fresh expressions of church.
Examples may include:
- A new network congregation for young adults across a town
- A revitalisation of an existing congregation in a socially & economically deprived part of a city, built on a partnership between a number of parties and the drawing-in of new resources.
