Legal and Operations (Including BUC)

Our main role is supporting local Baptist churches by offering guidance on various legal, property and charity issues and acting as Property Trustee for their buildings and property.

Our team has experience in law, banking, church administration and property. We produce Guideline leaflets specifically written for local Baptist churches. They are never a substitute for formal legal advice, especially when there are serious problems. For an index that will help you find all our guidance, please use the links on the right. Other links will take you to pages about our most popular topics.

And if you need us – we are here to help.  The best way to contact us is by email.
