A different kind of insurer

Where some insurers may not understand the work of the clergy, Ecclesiastical has been working with churches for over 135 years.

Clergy car insurance benefits

A general car insurance policy may not cover you fully while you are on church business, but we can help.

These benefits may not be available on a standard motor policy.

  • Church activities are covered as standard
    Work you do for the church may be considered as driving for business purposes on a general insurance policy. Ecclesiastical car insurance covers your work for the church as standard1.
  • Cover for items in the car
    Up to £500 of church goods covered within the car.
  • Unlimited windscreen cover
    This is subject to a £90 excess per claim if an approved glass supplier is used.
  • Additional drivers are covered
    This is only when using the car for church business and ancillary church-related activities.
  • Excellent customer service
    Our clergy car insurance team at Ecclesiastical is part of SEIB Insurance Brokers which are part of the Benefact Group. We have 60 years’ experience offering excellent customer service and will provide helpful information to guide you through your quote and find the right cover.
  • Optional extras
    There are options to include legal protection and breakdown cover.

1 Please note – social, domestic and pleasure refers to day-to-day, non-business related driving. It is important to remember that the car would not be insured for any other business activities other than those undertaken for the church. For example, use for a spouse's occupation or business outside the church would not be included in the standard cover.
