Offering support so our clergy and their families have a safe, comfortable home and a useful base for their ministry
Welcome to our pages dedicated to Clergy Housing.
On these pages we hope to give you all the information to help you live in your home. Here we set out the standard that we want your home to be in. We look at both our responsibilities and your responsibilities to make sure you have a safe, warm, comfortable home to live in.
A clergy house is the property of the Liverpool Diocesan Board of Finance and it is our responsibility to protect and maintain this as an asset for future generations.
A clergy house is your home and often your base for ministry. We want to make sure that it is a good place for you and your family. This is a responsibility we share with you. We expect you, supported by your PCC/DCC to contribute to this work through taking proper care of your home so it remains safe, warm and comfortable for you and future occupants.
We live and work in a time when we have limited resources and have to make the best use of what we have. Clergy Housing is predominately paid for from Parish Share so we are aware we have to be prudent with our expenditure.
So these pages make it clear how we aim to make sure that all clergy in a Diocesan property are living in a safe, warm comfortable home.
