Welcome to ChurchBuild
This site has grown out of the belief that your church building has a significant impact on the life of your church, and that your building should fit well with your ministry. Our aim is to equip you to make better use of your buildings for the glory of God.
If your church is considering undertaking a building project you will find a wealth of useful information in the ChurchBuild Project Guide under the ‘How To’ tab – this provides a framework for developing and running a project. Look also at the Downloads section, where you can access free resources, including those referred to in the Project Guide.
Browse through the other sections of the site where you’ll find a selection of other resources. We’ve recently added some advice and a video on Sustainability and Historic Buildings. If you find something useful on the site, or have suggestions for improvement, please let us know via the Contact page.
Check out Buildings for Mission, a handbook co-authored by Nigel Walter, which gathers together in one place all the things you wanted to know about church buildings but were afraid to ask!
“A huge thank you for this website and the help it has been [over the last three years]! Our building project is now almost complete, but in the early days when we knew nothing, we were literally working through your guidance sheets at each of our meetings. So thankful for them!”
Val Dickens, Hall Green United Community Church
