Finance & Parish Support

The Diocesan Finance Department is split into two teams - Accounting & Services (which are now part of the Resourcing Parishes Team).
Each team is responsible for its own area of work, as well as working closely together to provide support and services to parishes and the Diocese.

Treasurer's Update Issue 4 is now available - see the Useful Links page.


The Accounting Team is responsible for the day to day transactional work of the Diocesan Board of Finance (DBF). 
We record income and expenditure, process payments and provide regular management reports to the DBF and advisory groups.
We also prepare annual statutory financial statements, the Diocesan Budget and maintain the Risk Register.
