there are national guidelines to ensure all stipends are broadly
comparable, the precise level of your stipend is set by the body
responsible for funding your post (in most cases, your local
diocesan board of finance). That body will advise us of the amount
to pay you but please bear in mind that your stipend may be funded
from more than one source, and may include some local income (e.g.
parochial fees which are retained) not paid through us. As such, we
will send you a statement annually (a Central Register of Income
statement) and this will provide a breakdown of how your stipend is
Where the stipend includes local income, it is often possible to
assign this to the diocesan board of finance and to receive an
equivalent amount paid through us. This procedure avoids
fluctuations in monthly income. If you wish to assign, your
diocesan office can supply the necessary form.
Please bear in mind that the cash stipend is part of a wider
"remuneration package" which normally also includes provided
housing (with council tax, water charges, maintenance, external
decoration and buildings insurance all provided) and pension
contributions paid on your behalf.
