Our outward facing departments have come together under the banner of discipleship, vocation and evangelism (DVE) in DVE teams. Our Central Administrative Support Teams work closely with the DVE teams to help equip people in discipleship, vocation and evangelism.
The legal entity that performs most of the work of the Diocese and employs its staff is the Lichfield Diocesan Board of Finance. It undertakes many functions on behalf of the Bishop of Lichfield and his team and also for many parishes.
But each parish is a separate legal entity, a charity under civil law, that is managed by its legal trustees who are the elected members of its PCC (Parochial Church Council).
