Church of England Birmingham, 1 of 44 Dioceses in the Church of England, makes the move to Xledger’s pure Cloud solution as part of a broader push to the Cloud across many of the Dioceses’ core back office systems. Implementing Xledger will enable the Diocese to move to a single charity accounting system for the whole organisation, modernise and automate financial working practices and benefit from efficiency gains and cost reductions.
About Church of England Birmingham
The Birmingham Diocese, founded in 1905, is one of 44 Dioceses in the Church of England. It covers an area of nearly 300 square miles, and includes parishes in the West Midlands including Birmingham and parts of Solihull, Sandwell, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
Right at the heart of what they do there are 188 Church of England churches and worship centres with an average Sunday attendance of 14,000 from a population of 1.5 million. In these churches are clergy and church-goers representing a wide scope of Church tradition and breadth of ethnicity.
The diocese is divided into two pastoral administrative areas led by the Archdeacon of Aston and the Archdeacon of Birmingham. Each of these areas contains a number of deaneries, or groups of parishes. Each parish is governed by a Parochial Church Council (PCC) with independent statutory powers.
The Church of England in Birmingham aims to promote, facilitate and assist with the work and purposes of the Church of England for the advancement of the Christian faith in the Birmingham diocese and elsewhere. This includes the provision of facilities for public worship, pastoral care and spiritual, moral and intellectual development, together with the promotion of Christian values and services by members of the Church in and to their communities, to the benefit of individuals and society as a whole.
