Church Buildings are sacred and holy spaces which should be open and accessible to people from all walks of life; they are spaces where people expect to experience the Christian faith and to have an encounter with God. Many parishes are looking for ways to increase their church buildings' use to respond to changing times and new forms of mission. Every church and parish is unique, and if you have aspirations to use your church better for mission in your community, the chances are there are already resources out there to help you, but finding them isn’t easy – and neither is knowing where to start. The Mission and Mortar toolkit was developed to help point you in the right direction.
The Toolkit is currently under review and we hope to relaunch the resource in Spring 2024. In the meantime, if you are looking for support with your church building or starting to consider how to seek funding, please get in touch with our Church Building Support Officer Lorna Theophilus or speak to our property team
