You may not be aware that there are certain situations in which a church can claim re-imbursement of Pulpit Supply expenses from Church House.
These expenses can be claimed when a Minister is unable to work for one of the following reasons:
- ill-health which is certified;
- parental leave;
- Jury Service;
- a sabbatical term which lasts for a period of more than four weeks;
- suspension under the Section O Process;
- serving as Moderator of the General Assembly.
In these cases the actual pulpit supply costs incurred by the church will be reimbursed to a maximum amount of £40 per service.
Yvonne Sired at Church House deals with the refunds and any enquiries from local churches on this subject. Yvonne’s email is: [email protected]
When notifying Church House of a Minister’s sickness or other absence, please remember to let the Synod Office know at the same time [email protected]
