This chapter examines the institutional organization of churches in the Anglican Communion. It describes their national assemblies, diocesan assemblies, and assemblies operating within the various divisions of the diocese and those administrative bodies accountable to the representative assemblies. Anglican churches are arranged on a territorial basis of provinces, dioceses, and local ecclesiastical units. These constitutional and canonical arrangements indicate a legal unity in the Anglican Communion in terms of the institutional church organization.
