Faith insurance

Ecclesiastical is unique among insurance and financial services providers. We began as an insurer of Anglican churches over 125 years ago. Today we directly insure over 95% of Anglican churches.

We’re also a major insurer for many other faiths. Working closely with brokers we provide Faith Insurance for Mosques, Sikh and Hindu temples and Roman Catholic churches. We’re also the leading UK insurer of synagogues. Find your nearest faith insurance broker using the postcode search on the right.

As well as specialist insurance covers, we offer faith organisations a range of expert guidance, advice and support - including risk management guidance notes and a free valuation service**. And with 97% of our customers very or extremely satisfied*** with our claims service, you can also be confident we’ll be ready to resolve claims as quickly and fairly as we can.
