Making it easier to insure your Deanery Synod activities

As our Deanery Synods are organising an increasing number of activities, such as youth outings and fundraising events, we want to make it easier for you to get the right insurance cover for these activities.

Better safe than sorry
Your Deanery Synod’s activities are not covered by Diocesan or PCC insurance policies, therefore each Deanery needs additional public liability insurance cover, to protect the Deanery for its legal liability in respect of injury to members of the public or damage to their property.

So we can make sure Deanery Synods have public liability cover, our Diocese has extended our existing public liability insurance cover to indemnify all Deanery Synods, up to a value of £5m, at no extra cost.

If your Deanery Synod needs additional cover, for example for money or property, you will need a separate policy – we recommend contacting Ecclesiastical Insurance on 0345 777 3322 Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm to discuss your individual insurance needs.
