Abstract

Witnessing God’s Mission: Towards a Missional Ecclesiology of the Church of England Mark Collinson For decades there has been an ecumenical debate about how the disciplines of missiology and ecclesiology relate to the nature and mission of the church. This book investigates how the Church of England is responding to post-Christendom developments of ecclesiology and missiology as expressed in Anglican ecclesial polity in England. The study makes a contribution towards a more contemporary missional ecclesiology for the Church of England by bringing the Mission-shaped Church report (2004) into dialogue with significant contemporary influences on Anglican ecclesiology. This research defines the Church of England as an agent of God’s mission when the church witnesses to God’s kingdom in the world. It evaluates the four creedal marks of the church with a missional hermeneutic by expressing the priority of the apostolic nature of the church.
