Help for Churchwardens

The English Clergy Association's new initiative to help churchwardens has been appreciated. We continue to offer help and information to churchwardens via these pages, on how to deal with vacancy, how to get grants, advice about buildings maintenance and so on. Churchwardens will also enjoy the journal 'Parson and Parish'

Lord Cormack, Parliamentary Vice-President of the English Clergy Association said "As a church warden myself in my local church, I am delighted to see this initiative which will provide help and advice to hard-pressed churchwardens throughout the country".

Annual General Meeting is on Tuesday 16th May 2017, 2pm St Giles-in-the-Fields, London

The meeting will be followed by two workshop groups to discuss the way forward for the Association and the Patrons' Group: 'What is in it for me?' and 'How can we support Patrons?'. Do please come and give us your views about how you would like the Association to develop to give the most effective support and encouragement to all clergy in the Church of England in a time of great change and uncertainty. The day will end with Holy Communion (BCP) after the workshops at 3.30pm.
