We are currently working on updating the Finance webpages, this means that some links may not be currently working as we work on this over the summer. Sorry for any inconvenience, but if you have any questions on finances or suggestions for this webpage, please let Chris Boden know.

 

We hope that you find this page helpful and that you are able to find the information you are looking for. We are always looking to improve these pages, so if you have any suggestions, or ideas for things that should be covered, please do let Chris Boden know. 

If you would like more information on a particular topic, then please do contact the Finance Team.

An additional useful resource is the Church of England's Parish Resources website, which covers a range of issues.

Hunting down the best value deals for your church isn’t always easy and takes time. That’s why the National Church and the dioceses set up the Parish Buying service. The Parish Buying team use the bulk buying power of the Church to negotiate competitive prices with approved suppliers, across a range of different products.

Parish Share
Each year the diocesan budget pays for the shared costs of mission and ministry across all the parishes of the diocese, and puts the diocesan Kingdom People vision into practice for the fruitful service of church, community and world. We do this through a common fund; each parish pays a share into that common fund, which we call parish share.
