Below are links to all the cases that are currently open for representations (formal comments) to the Church Commissioners. You can send comments to the Commissioners either for or against what is being proposed. Comments need to be received by the date shown for that particular case. You can search for a particular case in the box below by place name or diocese.

All correspondence received by the Commissioners will be treated as public correspondence.
