Annual Returns

Parish Annual Returns 

Every year, all parishes in the Church of England are asked to complete two Annual Returns, one for Membership (previously referred to as ‘Statistics for Mission’) and one for Finance. [These are in addition to any Return required by the Charity Commission for any PCC which is a registered charity.]

For Returns up to 2010, a form was provided (either in hard copy or as a spreadsheet), but Guildford diocese has now elected to arrange input by parishes of both sets of data online, directly into the national church database of parish returns. This means that the old forms will not be available for any year from 2011 onwards.

All parishes are asked to nominate a parish contact who will be provided with details to register the parish on the database. The parish contact can then enter the relevant data or set up one or more other people to do so.Further information is available from the Parish Finance & Support Officer (see Admin)

The only place at which Membership and Finance data can be submitted to the national database is http://parishreturns.churchofengland.org/
