Insurance Advice for Churches

Insurance companies are no longer able to provide independent advice (following regulation of the industry) and churches should use an independent insurance broker to ensure that they obtain the best cover.  The South Western Synod Trust (and other Synods) are using David Edwards Insurance Brokers. There are of course other brokers who may be able to provide similar advice.


Other important areas for consideration.
