Diocese of Chichester

Incumbents' Handbook

This handbook is intended to help those who are moving into incumbent or incumbent-level (e.g., priest-in-charge) ministry in the diocese. It gives information on a wide variety of subjects and it is hoped that everyone appointed to one of these posts will take the time to read it carefully. If anything is unclear or if further information is needed, please feel free to contact your archdeacon. The current editor is the Archdeacon of Hastings, who will be grateful for any feedback, corrections or suggestions for further revision.
