PCC members are the Trustees of the Parish charity with a duty of care to oversee the financial health of the church and ensure that it meets its charitable objectives.
Critical to this financial health is some financial analysis and understanding, and the preparation of a chuch budget.
The Diocese of Liverpool offers some of the best tools around for churches to do financial analysis as well as templates and hands-on guidance for preparing a church budget.
Some financial issues are more technical - in this section we offer advice on PAYE
which has the potential to affect churches far more than you might imagine, as well as advice on parish investments
which are held by the Dicoese on behalf of the church.
