The Return of Parish Finance (RPF) is an annual online return which the Church of England requires in order to monitor its financial situation. The RPF is a key document supporting the annual reporting of each Church’s financial position.
The financial data is collected on the Church of England’s central system, usually mid-June, at parishreturns.churchofengland.org
The Diocesan office requires a copy of this Return in support of the Annual Accounts and Trustees Annual Report.
An electronic form should be completed to extract and compile the required financial data from the Annual Accounts for this online submission: Here is the 2021 form to download (Excel spreadsheet).
