Tackling Maintenance Issues

A workshop on how to maintain your church provided by the Church Buildings Team of the Diocese of Sheffield covering what maintenance is, how to identify maintenance issues and how to address maintenance issues. There will be a practical session utilising the maintenance plan and putting to practice things learnt in the workshop, as well as a lunch provided by us featuring sandwiches and an afternoon tea. This workshop will also feature a talk from the Giving and Finance team on funding for maintenance as well as a talk from Caring for God’s Acre on wild churchyards. Finningley is the perfect venue for this workshop as it boasts the only wild Churchyard in the Diocese!

This is part of a series of maintenance workshops we are producing in the diocese in each of the 6 twinned deaneries. While this is one is in Doncaster and West Doncaster, anyone is free to attend. If you are interested in the idea of a wild churchyard, please come along! Equally if you cannot attend, there will be another you can attend in another twinned deanery soon after!
