    PCCs should be aware under what circumstances Churches Together group events are covered by their insurance policies.

    A local church’s insurance policy normally only covers activities of that church authorised by the trustees of its Church Council or PCC. If a church hosts an event of the local Churches Together group of which it is part, its policy only covers that event if it has minuted that it has invited the other churches and takes responsibility for the event.

    Churches Together groups which organise events on secular premises such as school or community halls or in the open air need their own insurance policy.

    Ecclesiastical Insurance Group

    and

    Methodist Insurance

    both offer policies for Churches Together groups.
