Maintenance checklists and plans


Maintenance Checklist Templates

The National Churches Trust encourages churches to follow a maintenance checklist (or plan) in order to keep track of what needs doing and when, and we require applicants to our Grant Programmes to have one of these in place.

In 2020 we have worked with Historic England and the SPAB to revise our detailed maintenance plan template, now a "checklist". This has now been endorsed by the Church of England, Baptists Together, and Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales.

You can use the template below (regardless of which country you are in, or which denomination you are from) as the basis for creating a bespoke schedule for your church. Use it as a record for the completion of tasks, and those due, to help you look after your building in an appropriate way, and at the appropriate time of year.
