Church Maintenance Workshop for St Albans Parishes

How to organise maintenance by contractors and the safe cleaning of your church

Saturday 24 November, 2018 – St Stephen’s Church, Watling Street, St Albans, AL1 2PT

Regular checking and maintenance is key to caring for your church building. No, little or poor maintenance leads to unnecessary damage and high costs – but where do you start and what should you do?

Routine maintenance and inspection by contractors is essential in addition to that done by parish volunteers. This workshop will focus on the services you need from contractors and specialist firms and how you should go about getting them. It will also cover the safe cleaning of your church and its contents.
