Every church and church organisation is subject to a range of public law, and Anglican churches are also governed by canon law. The language in which laws are written are often intelligible to legal specialists only, and so this simple, jargon free guide to understanding key legal requirements will be widely welcomed.
This useful reference volume covers a wide range of common situations including: child protection, health and safety, employing staff, working with volunteers, appointing church officers, data protection, marriage and the law, and funerals and graveyards. It outlines the basic and essential knowledge that is needed in each area and includes Frequently Asked Questions and real-life scenarios.
An essential reference volume for every church.
