Church Buildings and Churchyards

It is our collective responsibility and privilege to ensure our church buildings remain open and accessible for future generations. 

Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) hold legal responsibility for the care, repair and management of their church buildings. 

Information, advice, support, and resources to help keep church buildings and churchyards in good condition is all offered through the Church Buildings Team who work on behalf of the DAC (Diocesan Advisory Committee).

The team also administers parish applications for the Archdeacon’s Written Approval under List B provisions, as well as managing and administering the quinquennial inspection scheme on behalf of the Archdeacons. 

If you're unable to find what you're looking for please contact the Church Buildings Team, by emailing They'll respond as soon as possible.
