Today we launch our new parish share system with a package of resources and support available for all our churches.
Every church will soon be receiving its parish share request based on the new system and 20 copies of a booklet for PCC members explaining the scheme. This is the culmination of two years consultation with parishes and deaneries throughout the Diocese.
The booklet can also be found here.
We also have prepared other resources to help you to think through not only the technicalities of how share is assessed but also why it is important that we all work together in resourcing ministry throughout the Diocese.
There is also a letter from Joint Diocesan Secretary Ashley Ellis concerning the new Parish Share Scheme.
This material complements the material you have received from the Stewardship Team who will also be launching their material on our diocesan website early next year.
We hope you find these resources helpful.
