Church Growth Trust initiates urgent audit of church buildings potentially affected by Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) 

The safety and well-being of everyone that uses our buildings is of paramount importance to Church Growth Trust. In light of recent concerns and emerging information regarding potential issues related to Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC), we are taking immediate and proactive steps to assess and address any potential risks associated with this construction material in our church buildings. 

RAAC is a construction material that has been used in various building projects, including some church structures. While RAAC itself is not inherently dangerous, certain construction practices and conditions may lead to issues that require careful evaluation and corrective action. 

Our comprehensive audit will include the following key steps: 

  • Immediate assessment: An assessment will be carried out to determine those buildings, if any, that may be considered at risk of having RAAC present  
  • If potential RAAC-related issues are identified, those churches affected will be contacted directly by the CGT team to discuss mitigating measures and next steps 

At Church Growth Trust we understand the concerns surrounding RAAC and its potential implications. This is why we are addressing this matter swiftly and responsibly. 

If anyone has specific concerns regarding RAAC in their church building, we encourage them to contact CGT’s Architect Jonny Heaney on 07729 082501, or
