Edwards Insurance Brokers have obtained this statement from Congregational, which insures most of the property in the Eastern Synod. It relates to the rules relating to empty buildings where a church has decided to close temporarily because of the current health crisis. Any enquiries relating to insurance matters for your church should be addressed to Edwards Insurance rather than to Congregational in the first instance.
