About ChurchCare

The CBC is working with several dioceses and a number of national partners including Historic England, the University of York and Atlantic Geomatics to develop software and a survey methodology to create digital plans of our churchyards and cemeteries (and everything within them, including buildings) which is compatible with the Church Heritage Record and Online Faculty System.

This will allow parishes to better manage their churchyards and if they wish their buildings, with a live online record which they can use and update. Having an accurate plan is also useful for attracting visitors and interest in the memorials and ecology of a churchyard.

The offer will have a cost depending on several factors, but we are working on reducing this to a minimum, or nothing for the initial survey.

The CCB held two free launch events in June 2017 to; at London Waterloo St John on 13th June, and York St Michael-le-Belfry on 23rd June. Attendees listened to presentations from a number of key stakeholders working on similar projects and how the Burial Grounds of England Survey could bring it all together. The video recordings will be available to watch online soon.

Open and Sustainable Churches is a ChurchCare initiative to encourage wider, more imaginative and more strategic use of the Church of England's 16,000 buildings. 

It aims to help churches select the right legal and funding model to develop their building for uses beyond the primary role of worship: these could be community activities, cultural events or even commercial activities.

There is now greater flexibility in the system to allow shared use of a building and our guidance pages offer advice on the options in terms of legal  and funding models
