People System

From May 2021 a new People System will hold people data for stipendiary clergy and other ministers.

The new People System for the Church of England is replacing MyView and is the system that holds the information that will be presented in the National Register of Clergy

The National Register of Clergy will be published on the Church of England website in May. It will show all clergy who hold a Bishop’s Licence or Permission to Officiate. It will not include contact information. As well as being the data source for the National Register, the People System will manage the payment of clergy stipends and hold the following information:

  • Your personal details – name, date of birth, Person Unique Number, and demographic diversity information
  • Your contact information – phone number, email and correspondence address, and emergency contacts
  • Your current assignment information – how you are currently engaged with the Church of England. This is the information that will appear on the National Register. Previous appointments will be added in time. 
  • Your personal identification documents such as your birth or marriage certificate
  • Your pay documentation – please note that existing pay documents will not be transferred from MyView to the new People System.

Important message

P60 Certificate for the year 2020/2021: Please ensure you download your P60 and any other historical pay documentation you have saved in MyView by 31 July 2021. MyView is being replaced by a new People System and will not be accessible after the end of July.

Guides to using the new People System

Watch these short videos showing you how to use the new system to update your details and preferences.

Updating your details

Information someone else needs to verify and update on your behalf

If you find any information about how you are currently engaged with the Church – the information that will appear on the National Register – is incorrect, please contact your local Diocese so that this can be corrected. The National Register is updated daily so any changes made by someone with the relevant permissions within your diocese will appear online the following day. 

Information you can update

Changes to your personal information, such as your contact details for example, which won’t be visible on the National Register can be made by you by logging into the People System.

  • Your personal details 
  • Your contact information 
  • Your personal identification documents 

Information you can access

  • Your pay documentation – please note that existing pay documents will not be transferred from MyView to the new People System. Please ensure you download your P60 and all of your historical pay documentation you have saved in MyView by 31 July 2021.
