First published in 1921, this handbook has sold over a million copies and has become the standard guide for churchwardens. An indispensable handbook for churchwardens, PCC members and clergy, it cuts a clear path through the complexities of modern legislation and explains the rules and extent of their responsibility as elected Church officers. This new edition has been fully updated to take into account several new developments including: * the Clergy discipline Measure 2003 * Disability discrimination * Memorial testing, and other health and safety issues * Data protection. Flowcharts and checklists have been included to clarify the more difficult points, and the text also includes legal forms and notices for use in parishes.
