People system


This part of the programme will deliver a national register of all clergy who hold a Bishop’s licence or Permission to Officiate. In the future, this will include lay ministers who hold a Bishop’s licence or Permission to Officiate.  

The People System will also:

  • Manage payroll and stipendiary information

  • Connect systems used for recruitment, safeguarding, pensions and finance

  • Seek to manage clergy change requirements online. 


For the new people system to be able to do all of this we need two more things in place: 

  • A common approach to organising and using data 

  • An integration platform that connects multiple systems.
