  • One aspect of the Council’s work is to give advice regarding Conservation, usually in connection with the Faculty Jurisdiction System

  • Balances between the Conservation and the need for Worship and Mission

  • Is not a decision-making but an advice-giving-body

Allow for the work to be scheduled outside worshipping hours, if conservation is carried out in situ.

Look out for:

Church envelope and environment (Rh, heating, condition of building structure, ventilation, rising water, dampness, pests) whilst preparing the conservation report

Consider closely the function of the object (religious/aesthetic/mechanical)
