The Clergy Reference Manual provides advice and guidance to working arrangements for all clergy holding the Bishop's licence, although some sections will specifically apply to those on Common Tenure.

The Clergy Reference Manual is a useful resource for all authorised ministers, ordained or lay, bringing together advice and guidance on working arrangements along with various regulations, policies and practices. The Clergy Reference Manual is a working document, with an annual review of all contents.

The information contained in the Clergy Reference Manual may include some information on matters which are legally binding on clergy, lay ministers and other lay officers and volunteers, but it should be generally understood as guidance and for information unless it explicitly states otherwise. In particular it should not be construed as forming part of any employment contract.

Further information on common tenure can be found in the Church of England FAQs, here.
