Penelope Davies-Brown, our Resources Officer. All property matters should now be referred to Penelope at the Synod Office. Penelope will either deal with these matters herself, or direct them to our Property Consultant for action. This will ensure the most suitable level of support is available to local churches in respect of their buildings.

Penelope urges churches to ensure that contact is made with her in the early stages of planning any building alterations, tenancies and leases.

 Property Generally

Church Buildings are, for many people, the outward face of the Church. This gives a great opportunity to present a good image. Well maintained and tidy buildings are therefore to be encouraged.

View Property Resources to obtain further advice.


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.
