Insurance for Methodist churches
Bespoke insurance offering a flexible range of cover for the various risks churches face today.
It is a sign of the times but, just like any business or home, places of worship are having to combat a rising tide of crime.
The sanctity of the church is no protection against incidents of arson, theft and vandalism. As well as opportunists and break-ins targeting arts or antiques. The soaring number of metal thefts is putting even more pressure on churches to secure their buildings and their financial futures.
These are just some of the diverse challenges facing those entrusted with the care of church premises and the safety of those who use them.
Since 1872, Methodist Insurance has been meeting the needs of churches. Church Shield is a combined policy that continues to offer comprehensive cover for the risks you face as a church, and includes:
Your buildings and pipe organs.
Your personal effects.
Your loss of income.
Your losses following theft by officials.
Your legal liabilities towards employees, authorised volunteers or members of the public following an accident.
Legal expenses insurance, to protect your position on a range of legal issues.
You or your employees or authorised volunteers being unable to work because of an accident.
You and anyone travelling on a church tour within the UK and Ireland.
Church Shield is designed to provide the most comprehensive church insurance available and cover provided is complete with a valuable range of support services.
As well as the extensive cover provided by the Church Shield policy, insuring with us also means that you get automatic access to services such as Building Valuations, Health and Safety Risk Assessment, Fire Prevention, Crime Prevention and Security, Schedule A, Fundraising, and National Churchwatch.
