Bishop Michael’s policy papers

In 2006 the former Bishop of Gloucester, Rt. Revd. Michael Perham published a number of diocesan policy papers. They remain official diocesan policy until such a time that they are reviewed or amended by a future bishop.

Bishop Rachel is currently reviewing all of these occasional papers. Her documents will be made available soon, but in the meantime please refer and use the papers in this section.
