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.


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

We  contacted all eligible clergy in June inviting them to submit their HLC annual return figures via MyView. If you have not already done so, you need to complete your annual return no later than 30th September in order to continue receiving the 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.

Clergy can now apply for parochial roles on a new site: FAQs & guidance on creating a personal profile are at here. If you need any guidance please contact Pathways Support.
