The Church Commissioners support the Church of England’s ministry, particularly in areas of need and opportunity.
We do this through responsible and ethical management of the Church of England’s permanent endowment fund, a diverse investment portfolio which enables us to provide financial support for the Church, by helping to ensure funding is intentionally used for mission and growth.
In addition to managing the investment fund, the Church Commissioners support the Church’s mission and heritage by providing funding, sound frameworks, and expert advice in support of England’s cathedrals, church buildings and Bishops’ ministry.
Supporting the Church of England - in numbers
At the end of 2022, the Church Commissioners’ investment fund held assets valued at £10.3bn.
We have committed to distribute £1.2bn to the Church of England over the next three years (2023-25).
The Church Commissioners for England contribute towards around 20% of the annual running costs of the Church of England.
