Award-winning training in Caring for Historic Places of Worship available at reduced cost
Places of worship are integral to the landscape of Britain, representing centuries of belief, craftsmanship and design. But, like all older buildings, our historic places of worship need careful maintenance to protect their fabric and assure their survival for the future. Routine maintenance can prevent the need for costly repairs and many tasks do not require professional assistance – just informed, enthusiastic people who care for the building and its history.
With this in mind, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) created the award-winning Faith in Maintenance courses to offer training to volunteers who care for historic places of worship, regardless of faith or denomination. These one-day courses are delivered by Deputy Director, Sara Crofts, and aim to give delegates the confidence to identify potential problems and their causes, carry out routine maintenance and know when and how to involve the professionals.
