Diocesan Strategic Reviews of Church Buildings

Following the 2016-17 consultation, the revised CBC template for Diocesan Strategic Reviews of Church Buildings for Mission Planning is now available as a PDF and Word document.

Useful feedback from the dioceses has been incorporated, and there is now a mechanism for combining data on people, places and money at deanery and diocesan level. James Miles, our Digital Projects and Outreach Manager, is ready and willing to help you with this. Please contact him via This email address is being protected from spambots.

The new template takes account of the recently revised “Crossing the Threshold” toolkit, and includes draft guidance from the Church Commissioners on writing a Deanery Plan in the light of the new legislation in this regard.

An overview of each diocesan data is also avaialbe as a downloadable spreadsheet

The CBC invites dioceses to consider if they wish to adopt or adapt this template for their own use. We hope that the template includes guidance, links and ideas you may find useful. The template will be revised and updated when occasion demands, we will inform you if any major changes or improvements are made.
