The care and maintenance of our church buildings, their contents and churchyards is vitally important, now and for the future. 

Advice and support for parishes in this area is provided by the Diocesan Advisory Committee for the Care of Churches (DAC). It is a statutory body that advises parishes, the Archdeacons, the Bishops, and the Chancellor ( an Independent Judge) of the Diocese on matters relating to the care and use of church buildings in the Diocese.

They are also able to advise on protecting church buildings, as well as offer general and specialist advice on church maintenance.


In this section, we cover how the DAC can support your parish, with dedicated pages on:

All forms, guidance documents and policies relating to church buildings and the DAC, can be found in the 'church buildings' section of Documents.
