Every window in your church is unique and needs to be understood and respected. Historic glass is one of the most fragile materials in your church. But we can help you see the signs and understand the causes of damage. We can also help you with practical maintenance tips.
If your church is listed, then you need to write a statement of significance and needs to apply for faculty. We can help you focus on what’s important.
Textiles contribute greatly to the character of church interiors and all need to be cared for in a way that is appropriate for the nature and condition of those materials.
This guidance offers a 'practical path' to net zero carbon for church buildings, showing where most churches should start, and the more advanced projects for churches who use more energy.
Timberwork (or woodwork) and wooden furniture contribute greatly to the character of church interiors. Help identify the signs of damage to historic timberwork and furniture and understand the causes of damage.
Trees are a traditional and valuable feature in your churchyard. They create character and support wildlife. We can help you take good care of them.
