Parish finances

Parish Finances are looked after by the Parish Finance Committee, which monitors all income and expenditure and draws up our Annual Financial Report to the Diocese and to the Parish. We aim for full transparency always: all figures are published and regular reports made to Parish Council. All questions are answered as fully as we can.

Our major financial responsibility is the maintenance and upkeep of our beautiful Grade II Listed Church, and we are determined to keep healthy surpluses for this vital purpose, so that we can hand it on in fine condition to the generations to come.

For the last Financial Year (2016-2017) the headline operating figures were as follows:

  • Total Income: £96,209
  • Total Expenditure: £106,454
  • Operating Deficit for the Year: £10,245
