Redevelopment and Alterations
Maintenance and routine repairs are important, see our page on Church Buildings ownership and maintenance, but sometimes buildings need to be changed and extended. The leaflet Redeveloping or Altering Church premises
contains guidance and suggestions about useful resources. The information is based on our experience of supporting churches, to highlight the opportunities and help you avoid the problems!
For churches in trust with one of the Baptist Trust Corporations please contact your Property Trustee when any alterations are proposed - look at the leaflet PC04
for details of the information that will be needed.
Churches thinking about undergoing a major renovation project may find the 'Church Building Projects'
website helpful. It has been created by two people who have worked with a number of churches undertaking substantial new-build or redevelopment schemes.
Before making any alterations please check very carefully whether your building is listed. - if it is then special consent is needed for any changes - please see our page on Listed Buildings
