Statistics for Mission

Completing your annual Statistics for Mission Form

Making it easier to complete your form

We encourage everyone to submit their statistics returns online, as it will save you time and money. You can do this at

(Please DO NOT use the downloadable forms from the ParishReturns.CofE page. These are not the correct ones for our diocese as they have a few questions missing. Please use the document links at the bottom of this page).

If you used the online facility last year, you can use your existing username and password to login again; you can also use your [Andoid/iOS] Service Register app username and password. If you do not have a username or password or have forgotten them, contact

The online returns site at also contains tools to help you explore how your attendance has shifted over the last ten years.

Please submit your church's Statistics for Mission return by the end of January each year. 

Please also note that if you are unable to submit your return within this timeframe, we do still want to receive it; the portal for online submissions normally remains open until the end of March.


Church of England Portal

You may wish to access your returns via the Church of England portal: If you haven’t already registered on this site, click 'register for an account'. You will then be able to link the parish returns site to your portal area. You don’t have to do this but it will make things simpler for the future and it will enable you to access other useful resources such as our diocesan online directory.

Thank you for your time in completing this really important information. Your data is invaluable to the Church of England and Diocese of Liverpool. If you have any questions, email
