As a District we recognise that we rely on both salaried and voluntary personnel, drawing on the expertise of both ordained and lay people. Where anyone in these groups incurs additional costs as a result of carrying out agreed duties as part of your role, the District will meet claims for appropriate expenses.
All expenses should be claimed as soon as possible on the appropriate expenses form:
This is an online form and should be used for a single claim of at least £5. This is due to the time it takes to process. This form is automatically submitted to the District Office.
This is an Excel spreadsheet with three tabs. Please read the guidance notes on this page for details on how to fill this form in.
Particular care should be taken to ensure all expenses for the Methodist financial year (to 31 August) are claimed by September 10th of the following year. Claims made after this date will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances.
Once completed, the form and supporting receipts should be sent to the District Office via email or by post. Payment is made by bank transfer. Please let the District Office know if this is likely to be an issue.
