The Pastoral Team of the Church Commissioners deals
principally with pastoral reorganisation, parsonage and glebe
- to assist the pastoral and property work of
dioceses by dealing swiftly, accurately and efficiently
with proposals submitted in respect of pastoral reorganisation,
clergy housing, glebe and related matters
- to provide accurate and appropriate advice to dioceses
- when adverse representations are made to seek to resolve those
based on misunderstanding and, if consideration is necessary,
to present the Commissioners with a full, fair and accurate
basis for their quasi-judicial decisions
We are overseen by the Pastoral
Committee which receives regular progress reports on all
aspects of the Team's work and deals on the Commissioners' behalf
with representations made with respect to pastoral schemes and
orders and parsonage house and glebe transactions.
Any material changes we make to the
Codes we maintain are circulated by email to Diocesan Secretaries,
Diocesan Registrars and anyone else who has asked to be included on
our circulation list. Please email us if you would like to be
included on our circulation list.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us,
either by letter, email or telephone. We are ready to give advice
and to answer questions.
