Guidance on Clergy Appointments

This page contains guidance on good practice in making clergy appointments. It is intended as an overview for all parties who may be involved in an appointment. It makes reference to the law governing the appointment of incumbents, but the general principles apply equally to other clergy appointments.

The guidance has been produced in support of the Ecclesiastical Offices (Terms of Service) Measure 2009, and was last updated in 2015.
