Church Property


Care and maintenance of all the churches and buildings within the Diocese is of great importance; for those who worship there now, the wider community and for the future.

Advice and guidance on all aspects of the care and maintenance of church buildings is provided by the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC). The Committee is appointed under the Care of Churches and Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure 1991, primarily to offer advice to Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) and to the Chancellor of the Diocese about proposed works to church buildings and churchyards.

The DAC forms part of the work of the Communities and Partnerships Network and can help with:

  • faculty applications
  • planning of building projects in a church
  • advice on protecting church buildings
  • general and specialist advice on church maintenance
