Clergy payroll

Payroll Services (Clergy Team) pay a stipend to most clergy and licensed layworkers in parochial appointments. We do not employ the clergy, but we are responsible for making statutory deductions in respect of PAYE tax and National Insurance.


Please note that during the Christmas period, our office will be closed from 24th December and reopen on 27th December 2018. The office will also be closed on 1st January 2019, reopening as normal on 2nd January 2019. Pay day is Monday 31st December 2018.

You can now opt out of receiving paper stipend documents, please see our Payroll FAQ's and this link for details.

The HLC deadline has now passed. If you have not submitted your HLC annual return then your allowance has been stopped. You will need to submit your annual return as soon as possible in order to reinstate your allowance. Please see our Annual HLC Returns page for more details.

Do we have your up to date email address? Please check on MyView to see what address we currently hold. If you need to update your email address please see our frequently asked questions for information on how to do this.
