Diocesan Synod passes share scheme

Diocesan Synod passes share scheme
17 NOVEMBER 2012
Members voted enthusiastically for the new scheme (all were in favour, with just one abstention) which is the result of 18 months careful work with the Share Review Group drawn from interested parties across the diocese. The scheme has been considered at Bishop’s Council and also discussed in detail at this year’s financial consultations.

The Synod approved the structure of the proposed parish share scheme and authorised Bishop’s Council to complete the detailed preparations for its introduction. The new scheme comes into operation in 2014.

At the same meeting, members also approved the 2013 Budget, which is based on an average share increase of 2% and a 2% stipend and salary rise.
