Faith Based Charities lawyers, sparks of light

Faith Based Charities

Legal Advice for Faith Based Charities

Faith based charities need experienced legal advisers who understand the unique and complex framework within which they operate. Our clients look to us for commercially-focused legal advice and support to help them to run their organisations and implement new initiatives, whilst most effectively furthering their mission.

Expert Legal Advice and Practical Support

Our charity lawyers are knowledgeable, understand the interplay between temporal and ecclesiastical law and are always available to give prompt advice to Diocesan Boards of Finance and Education, Clergy, Parochial Church Councils, and other faith based charities.

Jos Moule is the Registrar to the Diocese of Gloucester and we have built a team which provides the full range of Diocesan Registry services and other legal advice. The Registry team includes lawyers specialising in Church land and property, employment and HR, and education and academies. They understand the way in which Church of England Dioceses and other faith based charities are structured.

Our charities team also advises on issues such as marriage, parish re-organisations, the ordination and appointment of Clergy and Clergy discipline.

Many religious organisations operate as charities; we have a team of dedicated and nationally recognised lawyers who specialise in charity law, particularly as it applies to faith based charities.

Added Value

Our experience allows us to identify common issues and difficulties and allows our team of charities lawyers to share general advice of particular importance to faith based charities. This can range from the eligibility of charity trustees to chancel repair liability. We also run practical training seminars on a variety of specialist subjects.

For further information regarding the legal advice we provide to faith based charities, please contact Con Alexander on 0117 314 5214.

The quality of service is strong, but always balanced with a practical viewpoint. Advice is therefore not excessively legalistic and can be implemented more easily than would be possible with a more technical approach.
