Clergy Discipline Measure (CDM)

The guidance on publishing penalties changed in 2022. CDM penalties (imposed after October 24, 2022) and records of Tribunal decisions are now published on the Church of England website.

Notices of findings and penalties given to clergy in the Diocese of Guildford before November 2022

Before November 2022, the Clergy Discipline Commission recommended that dioceses should publicise the imposition of penalties under the Clergy Discipline Measure by setting up a Clergy Discipline page on the diocese’s website. 

All penalties should be recorded on it, whether imposed by the bishop or by a bishop’s disciplinary tribunal for the diocese. The name of the cleric, the penalty, the date imposed, and a brief summary of the penalty should be included in the entry. Penalties before November 2022 are recorded on this page when they are imposed.
