Clergy Discipline

Need help? Clergy Discipline Complaints

If you’ve had a Clergy Discipline complaint made against you, we’re on your side.

Every step of the way, we are with you

Contact us to arrange your free, confidential initial consultation. Gavin and Sue are part of our Registry team advising two dioceses and specialists in ecclesiastical law and clergy discipline.

We are not able to represent respondents in the Dioceses of Salisbury or Winchester, because our role is to advise the bishop in these dioceses.

Get Ready

  • There’s no charge for
    an initial consultation
  • We’ll talk you through
    the process
  • We’ll help you apply for
    Ecclesiastical Legal Aid
    (most people don’t have
    to pay anything)

Have Your Say

  • We’ll help you get your
    side of the story together
  • We’ll help you draft your response to the complaint
  • If you accept the complaint, we’ll help you present your mitigation

Be Heard

  • If your case is investigated, we’ll speak up for you
  • If your case goes to a
    Tribunal, we’ll help you
    prepare your case, and
    we’ll represent you at
    the hearing
