ParishShareThank you for engaging in our Parish Share consultation. 

Please see the latest news on the report below.

Videos of our Parish Share evaluation and consultation day will be coming soon. For now, here are the questions posed during the day. What do you think.

Questions for consultation

  • What do you see as the most important objective for“Parish Share” at an overview level?
  • What are the important ‘success criteria’ for you in an approach to Parish Share?
  • What strikes you afresh about the issue?

Also: what do you identify as the (up to) three main issues with the current parish share system? Indicate whether each is more of a 'size of pie,' or 'allocation of pie' issue or both.

Send your input on these questions, as well as any comments you may have on the current parish share system, to

Parish share review update

Two options to be modeled.



  • Why are we having a review?
    In 2014, Diocesan Synod passed a motion to look at Parish Share once a new Bishop was in place. Upon arrival in the Diocese in early 2015, Bishop Andrew commissioned the review, to commence after the first report of the 'Common Purpose Group' looking at our Diocesan Mission Strategy. The current system is also nine years old, and due for review. 
  • When will the review take place?

    In three phases.

    1. Evaluation: Feb to June 2016 with a  Consultation Day on Sat 12th March, 10:00 – 13:30 at Guildford Cathedral

    2. Design: July 2016 - February 2017

    3. Implement: March 2017 - October 2017

  • Who will be doing the work?
    A review panel has been nominated to analyse data, feedback and examine possibilities. The group can be found here
  • How can I have my say?
    The process will be building in ​lots of opportunities for feedback and consultation. If you missed the Cathedral Consultation you can view the presentations, and answer the consultation questions which those present on the day considered. We advise you watch the presentations in a group, and consider the questions together, and submit a single response. These can be sent to Nick Edmonds at
