Welcome to the new on-line data capture system for parish returns.  The system is set up to receive the annual Parish Finance Return and the Statistics for Mission. The thinking behind the system is that users at parish level input their data directly into a common database and have immediate access to a wealth of data showing how their parish has progressed over the last ten years. As soon as the data is entered at parish level the statistics become available at diocese and national church level to help plan resource allocation without the need to re-key data into a series of systems – replacing a process which previously took up to 18 months to complete!
