Church buildings

Churches and church halls are managed by the local PCC.

Before making any alterations or repairs to the church, parishes need to contact the DAC (Diocesan Advisory Committee). The DAC can also offer advice on any buildings related issues and has issued many advice documents which can be downloaded below.

To find out more about the DAC, what it does and how it can help you and your parish please click here.
