Guided pledge

Guided Pledge is the mechanism we use to help parishes consider how much they should contribute in Parish Share.

The calculation used is based on four areas that are common to all parishes: financial resources, clergy resource provided, the parish’s level of relative wealth and people resources.

Each year (usually early September) parishes are provided with a Guided Pledge figure to be used by the PCC as a guideline for deciding how much to contribute in Parish Share.
