Our accounts are presented at the Annual Meeting and can be requested at any time afterwards.

Expenditure is monitored by our Finance Manager, Treasurer, Finance Team and PCC on a weekly, monthly, bi-monthly and annual basis.

The PCC sets an annual budget under five headings:

Housekeeping & Bills(£32k) the basics of church life – i.e. the regular bills!

Resources(£28k) for children, teen & adult groups, office equipment, a.v., printing and outreach events. We also give ~£200pw to support worldwide Christian work.

People(£111k) salaries of a small office team, our Ivybridge and our Children’s Team Leaders and clergy expenses, as well as a fund to assist those in specific need.

Common Fund(£87k) after ten years of being subsidised by other churches, we are finally “paying our way” by covering the salary of having a Vicar, the central costs of the Diocese and now starting to provide for other churches that are struggling.

Buildings(£17k) a 130-year-old church, and heavily used halls need to be maintained and equipped to be effective bases for mission.
