We encourage you to submit your statistics online. It saves you time and money. You can do this via http://parishreturns.churchofengland.org/
. If you used this last year you should be able to login with your existing username and password; you can also use your Online Service Register app username and password. If you need a username or password or have forgotten yours then contact Gordon.firstname.lastname@example.org
The online returns site at http://parishreturns.churchofengland.org/
also contains tools to help you explore how your attendance and income/expenditure have shifted over the last few years. Paper versions will be available for download from our diocesan website soon. To save us all money we are not posting information to parishes.
You may wish to access the return via the new Church of England portal site at https://cofeportal.org
. If you haven’t already you can register on this site by clicking “register for an account”. You will then be able to link the parish returns site to your portal area. You don’t have to do this but it will make things simpler for the future and it will enable you to access other useful resources such as our diocesan online directory.
