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.

To help you appreciate the wide-reaching impact of the work of Church House teams, we have produced a two-page document with infographics.

Our Finance team performs a number of essential statutory functions on behalf of ODBF and is also here to support and serve the deaneries and parishes.

There’s lots of information to help you here on the website. Please start with the menus on the right, where we hope you’ll find answers to most of your questions. If you are still stuck and need further help, please get in touch. The key contacts are:
