Please follow the link here to find the latest edition of the Church Buildings Team Bulletin. It's been a whole year since the first edition was published and we are so grateful for the positive comments we have had so far. The purpose of the Bulletin is to keep those who tirelessly (or tiredly) look after our buildings informed of best practice and the most up-to-date information. The primary purpose of our churches is for the worship of Almighty God, but they also fulfil an important part in the life of the whole community and I hope that the content reflects both aspects of this. This edition contains our usual Good News story which this time is about the work of the good people of Skillington and the replacement of their stolen lead roof, we continue the Focus On – The DAC with an introduction to Dr Ian Marshman, the DAC’s archaeological adviser, and there is the usual Training and Resources section which this time looks forward to the Coronation and the Churches Count on Nature event. With Spring certainly in the air (see the daffodils on the front cover), we look at the strivings of the spring clean, the dangers of dry rot and Professor Pinnacle investigates the scars of medieval scaffolding. Throw in some ideas on fundraising and you have something of a bumper edition. 


As ever, we would like to hear your thoughts and feedback – and we’d be really glad to hear of any quirky fundraising ideas which you may have had that have proven successful.
