Church Buildings Self Appraisal Questionnaire

Each church is recommended to complete this exercise at least once in every five years, in the hope that it will be helped to develop long term plans to ensure that its properties provide the facilities which are necessary for an effective witness and work. Before conducting the self-appraisal it will be helpful for the church to review its hopes for the future as these may have an impact upon the buildings; possibly for work with children, young or old people, perhaps for counselling, book-selling or large-scale catering.
