A part of your ministry which you may consider leasing or licensing all or part of is your church Property – this might include sharing your space with local community groups or a child-care centre.
Before you start, it’s important to understand what’s involved, including the legal requirements and any documents that you need to use to protect both the church and the tenant/group using the space.
Our experienced Property Services team is here to support and guide you along the way.
