Event description

Description

This interactive one-day course is designed to help those who care for places of worship to understand their faith building, and take practical action to look after it.

The course will be run in conjunction with the SPAB education department. SPAB (the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) was founded by William Morris and is the oldest building conservation group in the country. They run regular workshops and training sessions for historic building owners and practitioners but now it’s your chance to learn from the experts!

You will find out how traditional buildings were constructed, how they work, how they can decay, and how to spot and tackle common problems. You will also receive one of SPAB’s Good Maintenance Guides.

The course explains how maintenance differs from repair and emphasises the value of carrying out regular checks and simple steps to keep buildings in good condition. The practical session will use the host building as a learning tool and will be explored inside and out to identify maintenance issues and areas of vulnerability. The skills you learn from this exercise can then be applied to your own church buildings.

Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their own building with the tutors and with others attending, so please do come prepared!

Anyone working to maintain their church is welcome. Your church does not have to be listed but it must be within the Diocese of Southwark.

Places are limited so we ask that no more than two members of any one church attend the workshop.

A simple lunch along with teas and coffees will be provided so please be sure to state any dietary requirements. Please fill in your address as that of your church.

Registration is from 9.30 for a 10.00 start.
