Climate resilient church

Many churches are historic listed buildings and can be extremely vulnerable to climate change. We need to be protect them from harm.  

At the same time, our churches act as sanctuaries for communities facing the impacts of extreme weather; often built on higher ground and more solidly-constructed than the houses around them. 

Below, you can explore the kinds of changes that could help your church adapt to our changing climate, so that extreme weather events cause less harm and can be recovered from more quickly.

Clicking on diagram below will let you explore the main risks, and potential risk mitigation actions you can take.
