45 Share Allocation Scheme 2014 We aimed to improve Simplicity Transparency Fairness Mutual support clarity Sensitivity to parochial ministry cost changes Equity between deaneries and parishes But still focused on Christian generosity and discipleship

46 Share Allocation Scheme 2014 A few of the new features: Layout and description of the budget Direct costs of ministry Revision of clergy numbers as at 1 September Better measure of relative wealth between deaneries & parishes

47 Share Allocation Scheme part share scheme: £14.7M Direct ministry costs of stipendiary clergy and House for Duty posts £3.7M Church of the Future – all national and diocesan clergy training costs £4.6M Support costs – national and diocesan

48 Share Allocation Scheme 2014 Allowances: Credit for wedding and funeral fees Use of glebe income ….for Urban deprivation allowances Rural relief Deaneries that do not receive these two allowances are supporting those that do by a total of £1.2M Use of the balance of the glebe

49 Share Allocation Scheme 2014 Some deaneries are adopting the diocese to deanery allocation method Some deaneries are not! Many deaneries allocate to benefice and then to parishes Some deaneries are better at allocating than others! Communication across parishes is key
