Parish Share – Diocesan summary 2011/12

This is the diocesan summary of how our money is spent. As you can see 80% of it goes to ensuring our churches have vicars that are trained, paid and housed. It costs an estimated £50,000 a year to support one full time vicar. If parishes are unable to raise this sum themselves annually, increasingly the diocese is having to combine enough parishes together into a single benefice which can support a vicar between them.
