Fundraising season is here

As spring is upon us, it is a great time to start thinking about event planning. From fetes to cinema evenings, events are a great way to reach out to your community and welcome people into your church.

Most events won’t present much of a risk to your church or those who attend, but some will require more thorough planning. Our guidance gives you tips on how to make the most of your fundraising ideas, as well as covering the key health and safety considerations.

Security funding boost for churches

Following the recent mosque attacks in New Zealand, the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, has boosted funding for next year’s places of worship protective security to £1.6 million – double the amount awarded last year.

The places of worship fund, established in 2016 as part of the government’s hate crime action plan, provides financial support for physical protective security, such as fencing, lighting and CCTV.

Keep the metal thieves away

Metal theft is, unfortunately, an ongoing challenge for churches. From the cost of replacement metal, to damage caused to the building during a theft, the impact on a church can be enormous.

If you have external metal at your church, make sure you have applied a forensic marking solution approved by us (such as SmartWater), displayed signage and registered it with the provider. These are policy conditions and you will not be covered for theft of external metal if you do not follow these steps.

For more advice on protecting your church against metal theft, please don’t hesitate to call our customer service team on 0345 606 1331.
