Parish Treasurers

Thank you to all those who are serving God and their local church community through the Office of Parish Treasurer. Parish Treasurers perform an important role in the life of a parish.

Election and duties

Treasurers are elected in accordance with Section 35 of the Parishes Regulation Canon. The duties and responsibilities of a Parish Treasurer are outlined under Section C.9.7 of the Parishes Regulation Canon.


Whilst having formal qualifications is advantageous for anyone in the role, treasurers are not required to be qualified accountants or trained bookkeepers.

Financial systems

Xero is the preferred accounting software for parishes in the Anglican Church Southern Queensland. 


For enquiries about parish financial management or Xero, please contact Brett Dury, Senior Financial Accountant, on [email protected] or phone 3835 2312.


Parish operational information and resources, including policies, canons, handbooks, procedures and forms are located on the ARC (ACSQ intranet). Treasurers can access the ARC via the Parish Treasurer login. See more about accessing the ARC.
