Expressions of Interest Sought: the Church Buildings Council and its committees


The Cathedral and Church Buildings Division of the Church of England would like to hear from people with the time and skills to serve on the Church Buildings Council or one of our voluntary expert committees.

The Church Buildings Council is responsible for enabling our church buildings to serve their congregations and communities by being relevant and sustainable. It sets policy and gives advice on the care and development of church buildings. It is engaged with delivery of General Synod’s commitment to net-zero carbon by 2030, and with issues of contested heritage and equal access to churches. Beyond scholarly and/or practical expertise we are looking for applicants who will bring imagination, insight, and new and diverse perspectives to bear on the significance of Church of England churches and cathedrals and the challenges they face. Applications from PGM (People of Global Majority) professionals are especially welcomed, to address the exclusive dominance of white voices among our members.

Further details can be found in our Recruitment of new Council members document. Further details on the roles and the committees are available here.

To express your interest, please send a CV and covering letter to [email protected]. Please indicate whether you are interested in serving on the Church Buildings Council or a conservation committee. Please send your application to arrive by 23.59 on Sunday 27 March.
