Common Tenure

The majority of clergy in the Diocese now hold their Ecclesiastical office under Common Tenure. This is part of a framework of terms of service that provides clergy with certain legal rights and obligations.

The current handbook can be found here and includes information about (but not limited to) appointment and office, stipends, parochial fees, housing, grants, expenses, MDR and leave.
