How is the Diocese financed?

The Bristol Diocesan Board of Finance (BDBF) stewards a major proportion of the overall resources generated and spent on mission and ministry through our churches, schools and partners.

The BDBF funds clergy, support and training for parishes, ministers and schools and our responsibilities to the national Church of England.
