We make better decisions if they are based on sound statistical data

We are committed to providing reliable information to help supprt good decision making. Our main sources of statistics we offer parishes are through the Finance and Attendance Dashboards. We produce these on an annual basis to give a realistic appraisal of the health of a parish. 

We encourage every PCC to take this information seriously and discuss what action they need to take in response to the information they have been provided.

However, while we produce the information is an easy to read, graphical form it is only as good as the information we receive from parishes. We rely on our parish officers to provide high quality, up to date information through the quarterly statistical returns and using the statistics for mission forms.

This section gives you a guide to the information you need to send to us - and when it is needed by.
