All building or property (capital) projects undertaken in the Diocese of Bendigo which are in excess of $5,000 and/or to be funded from monies held in Trust require the approval of the Diocesan Executive Committee (‘the Executive’).
Before you begin, please have the following documents ready to upload in either PDF (preferred), Word, or JPEG file types:
- Parish Council minute approving the proposal and which trust the funds are to be sourced (if applicable);
- Report outlining works to be done including summary and total costs;
This Report Template must be completed and submitted to the Registry before the last Monday of the month. The form is to be accompanied by all relevant documentation, including a Parish Council minute recommending the proposal (i.e. it must have Parish Council support).
Examples of reports that should come to the Executive for decision include:
A proposal to use trust funds in the short term, as part of a longer term “Parish Sustainability Plan”. (Parishes will have spoken to the Bishop, Archdeacon or General Manager/Registrar to arrive at this point).
Proposals to employ a person at the Parish (Parishes cannot employ people directly as they are not incorporated entities, all people must be employed via the Bendigo Anglican Diocesan Corporation)
All of the above require the approval of the Executive before being enacted.
