Our church insurance, designed with your needs in mind

From fundraising to fetes, coffee mornings to Sunday schools, your church is a vital part of your community, and so much more than just a building. We understand the importance of these activities, and that’s why our policy covers regular church events, outreach and community support, as well as the physical building. 

Church halls

A church hall is a wonderful asset, providing the perfect place for many church activities including children’s groups, coffee mornings and fundraising events. However, it is essential that the hall, and any church activities that take place within it, are adequately covered by your insurance. 

Our policy provides cover for all standard church activities that take place in your church hall, as well as cover for the buildings and contents.

As church halls often provide an invaluable facility for the wider community it is essential that organisations and individuals using your hall have adequate insurance to cover their activities. We can, at your request, provide cover for some private social events. Contact us on 01 619 0300.

Glebes and other residential properties

Our policy can provide cover for buildings and contents owned by the parish as well as the extra duties that are carried out by clergy on behalf of the church. The policy does not cover personal contents of the occupier of these properties though this can be arranged separately.

Our experts are on hand when you need them, providing advice and support to help keep your church and community safe. Keeping your church doing what it does best, and giving you peace of mind that you're covered should the unthinkable happen.
