Conservation Grants Annual Reports
Our annual reports for our conservation grants programme, which supports parishes in the conservation of ecclesiastical furnishings and artworks of historical and artistic significance
One of the most important challenges facing churches today is providing sufficient comfort for the many different users of the building, from worshippers to staff to visitors. Achieving this whilst cutting our greenhouse gas emissions and conserving historic interiors creates specific technical challenges for church buildings.
A church’s heating system affects its fabric, its contents, its congregation and its mission. Heating makes up the vast majority (over 80%) of its energy use and carbon footprint. Heating costs money to run, maintain and replace.
There is no universal solution to making a church comfortable and the key to arriving at a solution that provides reasonable comfort at a reasonable cost and reasonable environmental impact is to devote sufficient time and effort to understanding the particular needs of your own church.
We are in the course of updating our church heating guidance (as of February 2021). We have divided our guidance into a suite of short stand-alone sections. Pick out the section you need, or read all of them from start to finish. We will add more sections as they are ready.

Recordings of webinars on land and nature, for Churches Count on Nature
During 5-13 June 2021, over 500 churches around England and Wales took part in the first ever Churches Count on Nature. This is an nationwide project open to all churches, run in partnership by Caring for God's Acre, A Rocha UK, the Church of England Environment Programme, and the Church in Wales.
During Churches Count on Nature, we ran a special series of 12 webinars on different aspects of land and nature for a church audience.
Below, you can find recordings of all 12 webinars.
You will find help with managing trees and grasslands, introductions to ecology and biological recording, pointers for outdoor worship and Eco Church, and lots of helpful examples.
Our thanks go to all the speakers who volunteered their time to make this possible.
There are some circumstances where you will be required to go through a formal tendering and procurement process – for example if you are completing a project funded by public or government money. However it is a good idea to follow these processes if even you are not required to, as it ensures that you know you are getting good value for money. The process to procure goods, and to recruit consultants and contractors must be fair and open. We can guide you through the requirements.
A Fika is a half day programme, for small groups to explore God's generosity to us, biblical generosity and generosity around the world.
