What are you spending my money on?
It’s a question we all ask when the collection plate is passed around our Churches on a Sunday or the cash goes out of our bank accounts via direct debit. So how is the Diocese spending it?
Every year we produce a fact sheet that aims to give you the answers. This year the fact sheet includes both general principles and your own parish-specific share. The information is designed to be pinned up on a noticeboard and shared with the congregation.
The key points for 2016 are:
- The parish share has been kept as low as possible by holding the 2016 budget at the 2015 level
- The diocese will operate with a budget deficit for 2016
- Many parishes will see no increase in their parish share
- Some parishes may see an increase or decrease as the parish share is worked out on an annual basis and circumstances change from year to year
The following documents are generic versions of the parish share fact sheet. Each parish has received it’s own information. If you need a copy of your own parish share, please contact the diocesan office on 01745 582245.
