Patrons of parochial Benefices may belong to the Association, as a number already do. The Patrons Consultative Group, of which the E.C.A. is a constituent part, has organised meetings and advice for Patrons. Patrons are again invited to St. Giles-in-the-Fields at 2p.m. on 16th May 2017 for the Association's annual gathering of like-minded Church people.
