Care of Churches

Managing, Maintaining and Developing your Church

Welcome to the Care of Churches section of our website. Here, you will find a wide range of information to help you manage, maintain and develop your important church buildings. In addition, the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) is here to provide free advice and guidance to anybody approaching work to their church and looking to achieving the Faculty permission necessary to move such projects forward.

We hope that you will find this information useful in helping in maintaining your church building as a significant, healthy, visible and accessible presence in your local community.


ChurchCare is the Church of England’s national resource, adding value from the centre to support over 16,000 parish churches and 42 cathedrals. They support all those in parishes, dioceses and cathedrals caring for their buildings today and for the enjoyment of future generations.

ChurchCare is the comprehensive source of information for everyone managing a church building.
