Our cathedrals and church buildings were built for the glory of God, for worship and mission. They are repositories of our shared history and living buildings serving the whole community.
ChurchCare supports all those in parishes, dioceses and cathedrals caring for their buildings today and for the enjoyment of future generations. It is the comprehensive source of information for everyone managing a church building.
Our Church and Cathedral Buildings
ChurchCare is the Church of England’s national resource to support all those in parishes, dioceses and cathedrals caring for their buildings today and for the enjoyment of future generations. It has been developed by the Cathedral and Church Buildings Division of the Archbishops’ Council, and seeks to be a comprehensive source of information for everyone managing a church building.

Shrinking the Footprint is the Church of England’s national environmental campaign which supports the Church in reducing our carbon footprint. The Archbishop of Canterbury has said: “For the Church of the 21st century, good ecology is not an optional extra, but a matter of justice. It is therefore central to what it means to be a Christian.”
To get started in thinking about how you can reduce your parish’s carbon footprint, see their Taking Action checklist.
