Queries about insurance for local events is probably our most frequently asked question
The summary paper has just been updated. Some years ago Churches Together Groups were being quoted huge premiums for public liability insurance for events such as a Good Friday Walk of Witness. Churches Together in England discussed the matter with insurance companies and obtained the three more reasonable schemes indicated in the summary paper .
The update clarifies that when one church in a Churches Together Group hosts an event for the group, that church's insurance policy does not cover the event unless the trustees have explicitly minuted that they are the host and that they take the insurance risk. While this may be sufficient for an occasional event, if there is a regular programme of events it would be better for the Churches Together Group to take out its own insurance policy.
