PENELOPE DAVIES-BROWN - Resources Officer
Penelope Davies-Brown, our Resources Officer. All property matters should now be referred to Penelope at the Synod Office. Penelope will either deal with these matters herself, or direct them to our Property Consultant for action. This will ensure the most suitable level of support is available to local churches in respect of their buildings.
Penelope urges churches to ensure that contact is made with her in the early stages of planning any building alterations, tenancies and leases.
SHANON CRAIG - Property Consultant For Eastern Synod
The Property Consultant for the Eastern Synod supports the Resources Officer with his wealth of experience of both church and property matters. Our Property Consultant offers an increased level of support to local churches in respect of their buildings.
Church Buildings are, for many people, the outward face of the Church. This gives a great opportunity to present a good image. Well maintained and tidy buildings are therefore to be encouraged.

CHURCH BUILDINGS INSURANCE –COVID 19
Edwards Insurance Brokers have obtained this statement from Congregational, which insures most of the property in the Eastern Synod. It relates to the rules relating to empty buildings where a church has decided to close temporarily because of the current health crisis. Any enquiries relating to insurance matters for your church should be addressed to Edwards Insurance rather than to Congregational in the first instance.
