Closed Churches Available for Disposal

Around twenty Church of England church buildings are closed for worship each year. The list shown below gives information about buildings that are available for disposal and are being marketed for a suitable alternative use. Some of these are already under offer, but it may be worth registering an interest with the Diocese or Agent concerned in the event that the current proposed use does not proceed.

Further information about the procedures involved may be found on the closed churches pages on this site.

The Church Commissioners give no warranty as to the accuracy of the description of the property in this list.
