Welcome to the Press Office

Ecclesiastical is a commercial business with a charitable purpose – a rarity in our sector.  We were established in 1887 to insure churches and church buildings against fire and we're now an independent, specialist financial services group.  We still insure churches and other faith buildings, such as mosques, synagogues and temples, but around three-quarters of our insurance business is outside the faith sector, in the specialist markets of charity, heritage property, fine art, schools and homes.  Our group also includes investment management and broking and advisory services.
