Insurance provides financial protection against most risks which adversely affect the assets of the diocese and parishes such as – fire, burglary impact, flood and other forms of damage or legal action.




All diocesan property must be insured unless prior approval of the Diocesan General Manager has been obtained. Buildings must be insured for replacement, and contents and vehicles for indemnity value. Insurance Brokers, Crombie Lockwood, are currently our recognised party for placing insurance cover. Other liabilities and indemnity covers may be taken as appropriate.

The installation of a monitored intruder/smoke alar system to an approved standard is required wherever possible for all major parishes and establishments.
