Our office is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.  If you have any queries, please contact us and we will be happy to help.

The Board of Finance is a limited company responsible for employing staff at Church House; for managing the finances of the Diocese; and for providing administration and holding property on behalf of Diocesan Synod (as the Diocesan Synod is legally unable to do so). It acts in accordance with the policy and directives of the Diocesan Synod.

The Board of Finance provides information and advice on financial matters to clergy, PCCs and Parish Treasurers; and is responsible for keeping the accounts of various diocesan bodies.

Diocesan Development Fund

The Bishop’s Council have approved the launch of the new Diocesan Development Fund to support the work of churches and communities across the diocese. The assets of the Fund, which include the proceeds from the sale of Glenfall House, will enable it to make grants of up to £400,000 p.a. for the next 10 years.

Full information and application process

Your Parish Code

We have received a number of calls regarding the parish code. This is not a Diocesan code but comes from the Archbishop’s Council. To find your parish code, simply visit the national A Church Near You website, search for your parish (by name or location), then click on the ‘more info’ tab. The parish code is the 6-digit code starting ‘6’.


We have substantial resources, advice and guidelines to support the subject of giving.

Parochial fees

These are fees due for weddings and funerals, rate-set by the Archbishop’s Council. Extras may be set by the PCC (eg organist/bells etc)
