We are aware that there are a number of parishes in the diocese, which have not switched to the new Parish Plus parish policy by Ecclesiastical Insurance yet, but have been offered this as a renewal option this year. The renewal date for their policies is due on 1 October 2017. Parish Plus comes with a number of important changes compared to Ecclesiastical’s Parish Guard policy.
Insurance is one of the highest spend areas for parishes, so it is important to make good decisions when buying cover. In line with the guidance provided by Parish Buying and available here: https://www.parishbuying.org.uk/images/Buying_Guides/2017-Insurance-Guide.pdf we would like to encourage eligible parishes to consider obtaining a quote from both Ecclesiastical http://www.ecclesiastical.com/and Trinitas Church Insurance. The latter is able to provide quotes online at: http://www.trinitaschurchinsurance.co.uk/ or over the phone.
