Return of Annual Report & Accounts

This relies on a team effort from all the PCC members because the Annual Report, Accounts and Budget are just three of a number of other items required as part of the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) process.

These should be entered no later than 28th June (should be submitted within 28 days of the Annual Parochial Church Meeting, which must be held between 1st January and 31st May - see Rule M1 (1) of the Church Representation Rules).

The Annual Accounts submission must include:

  • the accounts themselves
  • the Trustees' Report and the Independent Examination as reviewed by the APCM (this will require involvement of all PCC members)
  • please include a copy of the coming year's budget for information

You will find helpful advice, resources and examples in the following downloads:

If you have any queries on any of the above please do contact the Diocesan Finance Team ( or your Deanery Financial Adviser.

Thank you, on behalf of the Diocesan family of churches and the wider church, for playing your part in this important process which helps to shape our future ministry together.
