The Diocesan Secretary, George Colville, has written to parishes to explain what measures are being put in place by the Diocese of Chester and the National Church to support parishes during this time of uncertainty.
In the letter to Treasurers and Churchwardens, George Colville explained that the Chester Diocesan Board of Finance is thinking through the immediate and longer-term financial issues that may affect parishes and the diocese.
He explained that members of staff are on hand to support parishes and to answer any queries. A number of steps have been taken to support parishes, including changes to monthly remitting of fees.
