Consultation on parish reorganisation and closed church proposals

Below are links to all the cases that are currently open for representations (formal comments) to the Church Commissioners. You can send comments to the Commissioners either for or against what is being proposed.

Comments need to be received by the date shown for that particular case. You can search for a particular case in the box below by place name or diocese.

All correspondence received by the Commissioners will be treated as public correspondence.

If no objections are received during the consultation period, the proposal will proceed in due course. 

If any objections are received, the case will be considered by our Mission, Pastoral and Church Property Committee. A list of those cases is available on our Representations Cases page.
