Deanery Parish Share assessment for 2023.
Parish Share for 2023 has been set against the context of major uncertainties in the economic outlook, continuing pressure on parish finances and high inflation. Diocesan Synod has agreed a 1% increase in Deanery Parish Share on the actual Deanery Parish Share requested in 2022 after application of the Parish Share Rebate. This will give an actual 1% increase for most deaneries and parishes. The 1% increase provides for a 5% increase in clergy stipends and a £250K annual increase in Clergy Housing expenditure. There is no planned Parish Share Credit in 2023. Deanery Mission and Growth Funds (DMGF) will continue to be available in the usual way.
Parish Share - Mission Giving
Parish Share in the Diocese of Liverpool is a form of mission giving and a system of mutual support through which the costs of Missional Leadership are shared. These are the costs of clergy stipends, pensions, housing, and training, along with funding for deaneries.
Parish Share does not pay for the work of St James’ House services. Each parish is assessed using a formula based on church attendance figures and government deprivation statistics. Only through Parish Share can we guarantee a Christian presence in all communities in our Diocese so that we can see a bigger church to make a bigger difference.
