Statistics for Mission and Return of Parish Finance

Introduction

The Church of England online system for collecting the annual Return of Parish Finance & Statistics for Mission returns can be accessed here - http://parishreturns.churchofengland.org/

If you already have registered account, you can log in directly to the system, if not, you need to register first on this page - https://parishreturns.churchofengland.org/parishreg

Please note that to register you will need to contact the Diocesan office for your parish code and password – you can request these from Jackie Cox at Jackie.cox@elydiocese.org

Why use the online portal?

The great advantage of the online system is that it allows parish users to input their data directly into a common database – giving them easy access to their historic parish records.

Once data has been entered into the portal, the details also become available to view at diocesan and national church level to help support resource allocation and planning, without the need to re-enter the information in several different places.

This year the Church of England and Diocesan teams are hoping that all parishes will register and enter their information through the online portal. This will significantly speed up the process, reduce the risk of forms going astray in the post and streamline the administrative burden of entering the information multiple times.

We thank all parishes for your support in using the online system. If however you are unable to use the online platform, forms can be downloaded from here (https://parishreturns.churchofengland.org/index.php) and emailed or posted to the Diocesan office at the details below.
