What is a Bishop's Mission Order (BMO)?

A Bishop's Mission Order is a legal device created as one part of the 'Dioceses Pastoral and Mission Measure' in the Church of England. It creates a means for a bishop to legally recognise a mission initiative that will lead to a new Christian community - a fresh expression of church.

A Bishop’s Mission Order is not needed for every fresh expression but will normally be helpful or required where a fresh expression in the Church of England operates across parish, deanery or diocesan boundaries or in parallel with existing church structures.

The process of granting a BMO can be initiated by the Bishop or by any office holder in the diocese.
