Free Church of England Cleared by Charity Commission for England & Wales
The Charity Commission for England and Wales has confirmed to the English Churchman that the Free Church of England has been cleared of any financial irregularities stemming from a Daily Mail article from 18 April 2021. The article had said that a “Former archbishop’s aide faces questions over “missing” £300,000 …”
In a statement to the press, The Free Church of England said, “On 15th September 2022 the Charity Commission wrote to the Free Church on England stating that their extensive investigation, with which the Free Church of England and the Free Church of England Central Trust cooperated fully, had come to an end.
The conclusion was that the Serious Incident Report (that had been filed with the Charity Commission 5 days before the Daily Telegraph Article), which had been fuelled by other complaints along the way, has now been examined. The Charity commission have now stated that we are assured that there has been no misappropriation of funds by the Charity or its Trustees.”
