Welcome to the Finance section of the diocesan website.

The Oxford Diocesan Board of Finance (ODBF) is an incorporated, charitable body which is the diocese’s financial executive and the employer of its staff. Its directors are responsible for employing staff at Church House; for managing the assets of the Diocese; and for providing administration and holding property on behalf of Diocesan Synod. The Board acts in accordance with the policy and directives of the Diocesan Synod.

As well performing a number of essential statutory functions on behalf of ODBF, the Finance team is also here to support and serve the deaneries and parishes.
