1. Survey of Planned Giving in 2016

Data relating to planned giving is collected by the Diocesan Mission Team.  This provides a valuable resource to the team when working with and advising parishes.  It also enables the team to provide parishes with a chart showing how their planned giving profile compares with that of the Diocese.  To request a comparative chart for your parish please email the Diocesan Adviser in Christian Giving, Martin Smith

The Statistics for Mission data is collected by the Research and Statistics Department of the Archbishops’ Council. The data is collected through the Church of England’s online Parish Return System.

This data is also very helpful to the Diocesan Mission Team when working with and advising parishes.  It all so helps the team when setting key mission priorities and when planning mission initiatives and events. 

Please note that greater reliance is being placed upon statistics concerning church attendance etc, when applications for grants from the Church Commissioners, to support particular initiatives in mission and church growth, are being evaluated. It is therefore important that accurate returns are submitted when requested.
