Centenary Share

Centenary Share is a system to share the costs of mission and ministry between every parish. Full payment is essential if we are to fulfil our calling to ‘Grow in God’.

  • It is based on the real cost of ministry
  • Around 69% of the diocesan budget is spent directly on the cost of parish clergy
  • The rest is spent on supporting ministry in parishes, administering the charity and the wider mission of the church
  • 80% of the budget has to be raised through the Centenary Share
  • Unlike many other dioceses we have very few historic resources and so, of all the 41 dioceses, we are the diocese that is most reliant on contributions from members
  • It fulfils our calling to be the Body of Christ, where we all work in partnership with the strong supporting the weak
