Statutory Parochial Fees, effective 1 January 2022, have been set by the national Church of England according to the formula based on the year on year increase in Retail Price Index.
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.
