Get specialist advice from an ethical church insurance broker

At WRS Insurance Brokers, we understand that a church is more than a place of worship, it plays a fundamental part at the heart of its community. Our churches are now home to such a diverse range of activities – from playgroups and drop-in centres to food banks, youth activities and lunch clubs – that your church insurance needs will have changed considerably in recent years.

With over 40 years’ experience protecting churches and a dedicated team of church insurance brokers, we can help you find a cost-effective policy to meet your needs and budget quickly and efficiently. Whether your place of worship is a large listed building or if you’re a small new fellowship we can give you expert advice on the insurance you need.

Bespoke Church Buildings Insurance you can rely on

Whether your buildings are old or modern, our experienced Church Insurance team will give you the independent, impartial advice you need to decide which fits your unique church buildings best.

From insurance for historic listed church buildings to cover for new or converted buildings we can help provide you with a Church Buildings Insurance quote for churches of all constructions, sizes and age. Cover can include:

  • Fire
  • Theft
  • Malicious damage – Cover to pay the cost of damage caused by someone who isn’t legally allowed to occupy your property.
  • Property owners’ liability – Covering you against the cost of potentially expensive claims if an accident, such as a visitor slipping on a step, happens at your church building
  • Accidental damage – covering the cost of repairs if they’re damaged by a one-off incident
  • Reinstatement costs
  • Making safe any damaged headstones, monuments or memorials
  • Trace and Access to damaged pipework
  • Boarding up damaged glass
  • Bequeathed property insurance

In addition to covering physical risks like fire and theft, your church property insurance can also be extended to provide cover to enable you to rent an alternative venue in the short-term, if your building is suddenly no longer useable due to an insured incident. This can help you to reduce disruption to your church community by ensuring you still have a place to meet and run activities.
