The Diocesan Advisory Committee for the Care of Churches

The Diocesan Advisory Committee for the Care of Churches (DAC) exists to advise parishes and others on church buildings and works to them, ranging from a major extension to the installation of a new light fitting, reordering the church interior or repairing the roof. This includes advice to the Chancellor on granting permissions through the faculty system.

The DAC can offer expert advice to parishes on clocks, bells, organs, historic buildings, art, architecture, archaeology, furniture and plate.

As well as being involved in the Faculty process, the DAC advises on proposals for the redundancy of churches and helps in the appointment of Quinquennial Inspectors.

DAC Committee members have experience relating to various aspects of church buildings. Committee members include clergy, architects and furniture experts. The Chairman is the Baroness Judith Wilcox.
