Church Commissioners

A public authority

The Church Commissioners are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.*

The Church Commissioners are a statutory body established by the Church Commissioners Measure 1947 to manage historic property assets of the Church of England.

In June 2013, it was decided that the Church Commissioners should be included on this site. A number of factors were considered in arriving at this decision including the fact that the Church Commissioners are accountable to Parliament,[1] the fact that various public officials including the Prime Minister serve on the body as part of their role[2] and the body's objectives.

One of the five objectives of the Church Commissioners is: "to be transparent and accountable in organisational activity and internal governance".[3]
