Our Church Hall is in a poor state of repair, we don't use it a lot but it is used for village activities; we can't afford to spend church funds on refurbishing it, what can we do?

A number of church halls vested in the Diocesan Board of Finance (DBF) have been leased as Village Halls to secular Parish Councils or local trustees (Village Hall Committees). Charity Commission approval may be required. Normally the church will have some retained use of the Hall (e.g. on Sunday mornings for Sunday School, or for PCC meetings) and nominate a representative to the new management committee. The secular trustees may be able to access sources of funding that would not be available to the church. In the first instance DBF consent to the lease will be required.
