Parish reorganisation

The Pastoral Team of the Church Commissioners deals with parish reorganisation, clergy housing and glebe matters.

We aim:

  • To assist the reorganisation and property work of dioceses by dealing swiftly, accurately and efficiently with proposals submitted in respect of parish reorganisation, clergy housing, glebe and related matters
  • To provide accurate and appropriate advice to dioceses and others
  • To keep up to date Codes of Practice, guidance notes, forms and draft legal documents. Any changes we make to these documents are emailed to Diocesan staff and anyone else who has asked for them. Please contact us if you like to be included on our circulation list.  
  • To deal with objections to reorganisation or property transactions by explaining when they are based on misunderstanding
