Faith insurance

Faith insurance is what Ecclesiastical was built on. Consistently voted the Best Faith Insurer by brokers*, we’ve been insuring Anglican buildings for over 125 years.

Today, we directly insure over 95% of Anglican churches and cathedrals. We’re also the leading UK insurer of synagogues, and our unrivalled expertise means that we work closely with brokers to provide insurance for mosques, Hindu and Sikh temples. 

Our expert faith underwriters assess every risk on its own merits. This means we can tailor cover to offer Faith Insurance that provides quality cover at competitive premiums.

From risk management guidance notes to a free valuations service**, we offer you and your Faith clients a range of guidance, advice and services. And with 90% of customers** very or extremely satisfied with our claims service, you can be confident we’ll do all we can to resolve any claims as quickly and fairly as we can.
