Last Paragraph[edit]

I question two of the statements here. Did central churchmanship decline because of the closure of certain theological colleges, or were the colleges closed because the number of "central churchmen" who came forward for ordination declined first? Furthermore, if central churchmanship is still the mainstay, why are its representatives relatively invisible in Church affairs. (My impression is that central churchmanship has become mildly high church in ceremonial matters but that may simply be that there is no detailed agreement on where the boundaries between various groupings lie.)--Jpacobb (talk) 22:23, 11 November 2011 (UTC) I have deleted the "mainstay" comment since Hylson-Smith's figures show that is it no longer true. Broad Church (which may well be wider than Central Churchmanship) comes in fouth place behind Evangelicals, Anglo-Catholics and Liberals with only 18%.Jpacobb (talk) 18:46, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
