The Anglican Church in Tasmania has foreshadowed job losses because of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, it has ruled out the sale of any churches to deal with the financial implications from the pandemic.
Anglican Bishop of Tasmania, the Right Reverend Dr Richard Condie said church coffers had been hit hard.
"During the COVID19 pandemic, our churches on average have received around 30 per cent less income in gifts and offerings," Bishop Condie said.
"Revenue from some of our activities (for example op shops, weddings) are also down, largely due to the restrictions on gatherings and non-essential shopping"
Bishop Condie confirmed that some clergy and employees had qualified for JobKeeper.
"This has enabled clergy and many ministry workers to continue caring for their people and the community," he said.
"We expect that the impact on church finances will last long after the end of the COVID-19 crisis, and there will be some job losses."
"We don't anticipate any property sales related to COVID-19."
Bishop Condie did not provide details of how many jobs would be lost, but said he trusted God would provide all that was needed "for us to carry out his mission in Tasmania".
"We need to be good stewards of our resources, so we can continue to be: a Church for Tasmania, making disciples of Jesus," he said.
The Anglican Church in 2018 announced it would sell 73 properties, one third less than it had first flagged after parishes chipped in, to fund the redress scheme for survivors of child sexual abuse.
