Diocese of Chichester


Clergy expenses are normally met by their parish. Guidance can be found here. Contact the treasurer or administrator for details of how to claim.

Clergy who are retired from stipendiary ministry can claim fees and travelling expenses from the Diocesan Board of Finance for covering services in a parish to which they are not licensed during a vacancy or sickness absence. Travelling expenses, but not fees, are payable to stipendiary clergy, SSMs, Readers and clergy in full-time employment. A claim form can be found in the related resources section below.

If other expenditure which the DBF reimburses is incurred (for example attendance at a diocesan committee meeting) please use the diocesan expense claim form in the related resources section below.
