Building Advice

Making It Easier > Processes > Buildings > Building Advice

Our church buildings can be a valuable asset. They are a focal point for our communities, a reminder of God's presence and starting point for our worship, ministry and outreach in mission.

But sometimes they feel less like a blessing than a millstone, when they need expensive repairs or are too big, or too inflexible. Creative adaptation of buildings can restore the blessing and enable use 7 days a week for community with church.

Our Buildings Advisor is Tom Beesley.  His role includes the following:
  • Advice on building problems and regular maintenance
  • Supporting parishes following their Quinquennial Inspection
  • Supporting parishes with their future plans and vision for their buildings
  • Help and advice on developing a major building project
  • Help and advice on applying for a Faculty
  • Advice on selecting and working with your Architect
  • Assistance in focusing the Church Council's ideas when applying for Capital Funding for their project.
