Keeping your church property in good condition

Church Growth Trust (CGT) has produced a new briefing paper aimed at helping churches keep on top of repairs and maintenance to your church buildings.  This sets out practical tips for each part of a building, giving you a clear idea of what to look out for.  The paper also includes checklists of items to be inspected on a monthly basis and items that need to be reviewed annually. 

As John Duffield CGT’s Property Manager points out, “keeping your church building in good condition is not only a good witness to the Gospel in your community, but is also likely to save considerable costs in the future.  Small items of repair that are not carried out in good time, can end up causing major problems later on; so, it is always good to keep on top of the maintenance.  We hope that this paper will not only be a great benefit to our occupying churches, but also to other churches that have access to our website”. 

This is one of many practical briefing papers available on CGT’s website.  We hope that you will find it helpful.  The paper “How to look after your church building” can be found here.
