    The primary aims of these Guidelines are:

    • to encourage the clergy – deacons, priests and bishops – to aspire to the highest possible standards of conduct throughout a lifetime of ministry;
    • to identify certain basic minimum standards of behaviour;
    • to seek to ensure the welfare and the protection of individuals and groups with whom the clergy work, and of the clergy and their families;
    • to provide safe and effective boundaries for clerical ministry;
    • to encourage personal and corporate ministerial development.
