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).
Our Transforming Church and Communities team that was part of DVE until the end of 2020 has now mostly transferred into Transforming Communities Together (TCT). TCT is the independent charity that works with churches across the diocese to tackle poverty and its causes in and around the Black Country, Staffordshire and northern Shropshire.
