Sales of old rectories and vicarages have continued unabated for more than sixty years, with the result that the historic parsonage still in church use is now a seriously endangered species. But rectories and vicarages are part of our ecclesiastical heritage, just as much as churches, and they are also major resources both for church and community. They are focal points for parish life in a way that newer houses cannot be. 

The economic argument for retaining historic parsonages is equally strong. Sales bring short-term gains but long-term losses. 

Clergy and parishioners alike regularly find themselves linked in opposition to ill-advised sales by remote diocesan representatives. We offer an advice service and we give individual attention and encouragement to those resisting sales of parsonages. But we can only do so with your support. 

We need your annual membership subscription of £15. Payment by Standing Order (see below) greatly helps our administration and postage costs.
