Common Fund

The work of the Diocese throughout all of its parishes and congregations is funded in a variety of ways. The video below explains where the funding comes from and how it is spent.

The majority of the income of the Diocese of Exeter comes from the generosity of congregations through the Common Fund. This co-operation allows for the Diocese truly to be the Church of England in Devon for everyone.

Please see our Common Fund booklet 2021.

The Common Fund contributes to the costs of our stipendiary clergy, including stipends, pensions, housing and training.
