Church Repair Society  

Is your church a member of The Church Repair Society? If not, why not? For just £30 annual subscription, The Church Repair Society will pay for half the cost of your Quinquennial Inspection, up to a maximum of £250, provided the subscription is paid each year. This gives a potential bonus of £100. They also offer a savings scheme so that parishes can put aside regular amounts to pay for Quinquennial repairs. The Church Repair Society has been running for 40 years and its Executive Committee has a wealth of knowledge about churches in Greater Lincolnshire.

For all new Membership applications and general enquires about the Church Repair Society please contact Barry Hannington on 01472 840179 or

For all applications for Quinquennial Inspection funding and financial matters please contact David Rosier on 077565417920 or
