About Us Who we are Diocesan Team Resource Development

Resource Development

The Resource Development team brings together the following areas of responsibilities:

  • Property
  • DAC, Pastoral, Vacancies and Closed Churches
  • Old Alresford Place
  • Regional IT

The aim of the Resource Development team is to ensure that we are managing and maintaining our assets across the diocese and making the most of them. This may involve buying and selling assets or using them in different ways. It will certainly entail having an eye on the needs of clergy, congregations and local communities and looking for new ways to raise revenue for the diocese.
