Section E. Support for PCCs and churchwardens

Serving the church

The responsibilities of churchwardens and PCCs are many and varied. Helpful information can be found using the links on the left (or below) to find information including information relating to Parish Share and Parish Giving Scheme.

Each year the Church of England nationally collects two sets of data from every church in the land. Following monitoring church attendance in October, Statistics for Mission figures are collected and each May finance returns are completed. Wherever possible you are now encouraged to make these returns online. You will then be able to access and review the data for your church going back many years. For more information, click here.

An additional useful resource is the Church of England's Parish Resources website, which covers a range of issues.

Hunting down the best value deals for your church isn’t always easy and takes time. That’s why the National Church and the dioceses set up the Parish Buying service. The Parish Buying team use the bulk buying power of the Church to negotiate competitive prices with approved suppliers, across a range of different products. To get started, please register for free on the Parish Buying website or phone the customer service team on 0800 368 0887.
