DAC - Care of Churches


The 340 churches in the Diocese each represent the lives of thousands of people who have worshipped, celebrated and mourned there. Many are historic listed buildings and their care and maintenance is one of the greatest challenges that congregations face.

The Diocesan Advisory Committee for the Care of Churches (DAC) offers advice to Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) about proposed work to church buildings and churchyards, offers training for church officers with particular responsibility for churches, and helps congregations through the application process for gaining a faculty.

It calls upon a range of experts and consultants who offer their skills on a voluntary basis. Contact either the DAC Office or your  Archdeacon for further advice and information, and with any specific queries concerning works to your church building or churchyard.
