Clergy Terms of Service

This page is under development

Clergy are not employed;  they are Office Holders.  They hold their office under Common Tenure, with a Role Description and Statement of Particulars (which, as it were, are the equivalent of a job description).

The Diocese has produced a Clergy Terms of Service handbook.

Expectations of Clergy

The Bishop of Carlisle, in 2006 when Bishop of Penrith, wrote a handbook for clergy called "Rights and Responsibilities";  though some of the (eg legal) detail is now out of date, it still contains useful information and guidelines.
