The Association of Church Accountants & Treasurers (ACAT) support for churches

The Diocese of Leicester has a block membership with ACAT which church and parish treasurers may find a very useful resource.


Treasurers - Independent Examiners, Finance Returns and a source of help  (all the exciting stuff!)

Final Accounts – Once your accounts for last year are prepared they need to be inspected by an Independent Examiner, approved by the PCC at the APCM and submitted to the Diocesan Finance Team.


Grants to Churches and Ride+Stride News from the LeicesterShire Historic Churches Trust

Grants totalling £11,750 have been awarded to eight churches at the Trust's grants meeting on 18 May. The funds for these grants come from the Trust's share of money raised through RIDE+STRIDE 2020 which raised more than £37,900.


Properties needed for One Roof Night Shelter

Can you help those who might be sleeping rough next winter? New Government regulations in the wake of the pandemic mean that the traditional Night Shelter, accommodating around a dozen people at risk of rough sleeping during the coldest nights of the year, will not be permissible this coming winter. So, One Roof Leicester (of which the Diocese is a member) is asking if you know of any properties that you think would be suitable that they could potentially use and have on a 3 year or more lease? 


Cleaning church buildings in preparation for re-opening or in between uses

As restrictions ease, PCCs may be considering the questions of how to clean their church building appropriately in order to prepare for re-opening and what kind of cleaning is required in between uses.


APCM Election Results 202

At the end of April I will be sending an email from the Database to all DCC/PCC Secretaries asking you to confirm and update/amend the list of PCC Officers. Please don't email the changes in but use the link in the email to see the list the Diocese currently holds and make any necessary changes. There is no need to tell us that you've completed the update either.
