As a Diocese, we are obliged to pay the stipends of our clergy on a regular monthly basis.
There are times when we have to resort to borrowing or realising assets during the year to fulfil that obligation.
If your parish is not already making a contribution towards their parish share by Direct Debit, may we request that your PCC consider most earnestly making such regular monthly payments.
These can be as little as £20 per month and this amount can be reduced, increased or set to zero temporarily at any time by a telephone call or e-mail to this office. All we ask is that notification is given by the 15th of the month at the latest, as we make our submission to the bank for collection on this date.
Please find below a direct debit mandate form which can be downloaded and sent to Diocesan House once completed and signed in accordance with your mandate (usually two signatories).
