Welcome to the section on all things property.
The aim of this introductory page is to guide you to the section relevant to your requirement.
Property ownership in the Church of England is complicated! There is no one body that owns all church property.
- If your enquiry is about Clergy housing or other Diocesan owned property, please visit Diocesan Property.
- If your enquiry is about private rented property, please contact the Property Manager or take a look at our private rented property page.
If you are uncertain of the ownership of a particular property, please contact the Property Department.
