Stipend levels

The Diocesan Mission, Pastoral & Resources Committee agrees each year the level of stipends based on national consultations conducted by the Archbishops' Council as the Central Stipends Authority.

The "diocesan scale" agreed annually by the Diocesan Mission, Pastoral & Resources Committee covers:

  • diocesan basic stipend
  • diocesan training posts stipend
  • diocesan residentiary canons' stipend
  • diocesan archdeacons' stipend

Stipends and tax matters

The paying office is the Church Commissioners to whom all matters regarding payments and tax should be directed.

Other matters from clergy payroll services

The Church Commissioners' web pages for Clergy Payroll Services contains useful information on matters such as:

  • car loans
  • childcare vouchers
  • payroll giving

as well as forms for these and annual returns etc.
