Did you know:
Within the Church of England every church building must be inspected by an architect or chartered building surveyor approved by the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) every five years. This regular system of review is designed to ensure that church buildings are kept in good repair. The quinquennial report is one of the key documents which assists the Parochial Church Council (PCC) in the care and repair of a church building, for which it is legally responsible. It gives a snapshot of the repair needs of the building, and lists the repairs required according to their priority.
Our inspection was carried out in 2012 and has recommended a wide range of works which come to approximately £15,000.
Parish Share: The Parish Share is the sum of money paid by each parish every year to the Diocese to support local ministry. The Common Fund is the total of all 496 parish shares in Bath and Wells.
Every parish contributes to the Common Fund and every parish receives from the Fund in the following ways:
* parish priest's monthly stipend
* clergy pension contributions
* housing costs
* clergy training
* the wide range of diocesan support services e.g. the Education Department, which supports local church and community schools.
Our Parish Share has ranged between £6,000 and £8,500 in recent years.
