Church Art and Architecture Committee
The Mission and Discipleship Council's Committee on Church Art and Architecture advises and regulates the development of buildings to meet new needs and circumstances in partnership with the General Trustees.
The Rev Nigel Robb, Faith Expression Team Leader with responsibility for art and architecture, explains the importance of the group's work: "Sensitive and creative development of our historical heritage of buildings and imaginative new environments for worship are essential for the Church of the future."
Areas of work
The Committee advises congregations and presbyteries about the most appropriate way of carrying out renovations, alterations and reordering of interiors, with attention to the architectural quality of the Church building. It also advises on the installation of stained glass, tapestries, memorials and furniture and furnishings. The Committee can also provide a list of accredited artists and crafts people.
The Committee works closely with the General Trustees concerning alterations to the interior or exterior of Church buildings which affect their appearance. It aims to conserve the nation's heritage as expressed in its Church buildings, while at the same time helping to ensure that these buildings continue to serve the worship and witness of the Church in the present day.
A number of information pamphlets are available on our resources pages.
