Manual of Business Methods in Church Affairs
The Canons of the Episcopal Church set forth the general responsibility and accountability for the stewardship of the Church’s money and property. Title I, Canon 7 in the Manual of Business Methods in Church Affairs, issued by and periodically updated by The Episcopal Church, specifically addresses the business methods prescribed for every diocese, parish, mission, and institution subject to the authority of the Episcopal Church.
This Manual identifies requirements and seeks to provide helpful advice on sound, practical internal controls, accounting guidelines and business practices. We believe that it can be a tool that will support your efforts to perform the duties and responsibilities of your office.
