Synod Property Policy

Synod Property Policy

Historically, the Synod has had a Finance Policy to guide its decision-making but not an equivalent Property Policy. However, following consultation in 2016, the Synod adopted a Property Policy at its meeting in March 2017.

The policy sets out the following:

  •         the legal and constitutional position regarding church land and buildings;
  •         the relationship between the local church, the Synod company and Eastern Province Trust Company; and
  •         the relationship between local churches and their buildings.

There is also attached to the Policy (but not strictly part of it) a guidance note on the legislative framework applying to the occupation and maintenance of church property, which will be updated as required.
