Parish vacancy process

All the guidance and resources to help you through the vacancy process for parishes.

The Archdeacons’ Guide and the Vacancy Process at a Glance available to download below will give you  timings and requirements. There are other documents below which will help you through the process of writing and formatting your profile and organising a survey. Statistics which relate to your parish can be found through the ‘Related Pages’ links below.

The specific process used during a vacancy may vary based on the Patron involved and your Archdeacon will advise further on the specifics of your vacancy.

For further guidance for parishes please contact Archdeacons’ offices and the Parish Consultancy Officer, Caroline Bruce.
