Churches are fundamentally about people but here in the Church of England - Birmingham we also benefit from a rich heritage of beautiful buildings in which people have worshipped God for over a thousand years.

As well as these church buildings, the Church of England - Birmingham has land, clergy houses, schools and some commercial properties too. Our Property Department works with a huge number of volunteers and some staff to preserve them at the same time as enabling them to be useful spaces of worship and ministry.

If you're looking for information about the management, maintenance and development of your church buildings, go to Care of Churches.
