Parish Share 2020: Information and resources for parishes

Thank you to each and every parish for your ongoing contributions to Parish Share.

The new Parish Share budget booklet for 2020 (link below) contains an overview of the budget; helpful insights into how it funds the work of Vision 2026 and budget information presented in graphic form.

There are important messages parishes should read about the way ahead for Parish Share from the Diocesan Bishop, Rt Rev. Julian Henderson (extract also available below) and from David Barlow, Chair of the Diocesan Board of Finance (extract also available below). These messages sit alongside other general information and helpful pointers about where to get more advice as well as further assistance if needed.

Via the links below there are a variety of additional helpful resources for viewing and downloading. Parishes should avail themselves of everything available ... 

All parishes have received a copy of the budget booklet along with their Parish Share Assessment Letters. Ten printed copies have been sent to each benefice for PCC members

Once PCC members have absorbed the information they are encouraged to promote the key messages using their regular local communications channels, such as parish magazines, parish websites and simple word of mouth.

The digital version of the leaflet can be viewed online by clicking below, or it can be downloaded to a local laptop for viewing or for printing further copies ...
