Statutory parochial fees, effective 1st January 2017, have been set by the national Church of England according to a formula based on the year on year increase in RPI in the twelve months to September 2016. The figure has been confirmed as 2%.
The Guide and the FAQs (links below) are intended to help with information about parochial fees. The 'definitions' section (in both the Guide and the FAQs) is intended to explain the meaning of the special terms used with regard to parochial fees, including those defined in legislation. Parochial fees are regulated by Ecclesiastical law and the Guide is amended when new legislation is passed.
