Common Tenure on two sides of A4 (PDF-28.63KB)
Church of England

A new form of tenure for clergy office holders called Common Tenure is due to take effect from 31 January 2011. Clergy and other office holders will continue to be appointed as vicars, rectors, assistant curates, priests in charge and so on. Under these new arrangements, a post may only be limited to a fixed term in certain specified circumstances and the great majority of office holders may remain in a particular post until they resign or retire.
