Winckworth Sherwood's ecclesiastical practice is the largest in the UK. We advise on every kind of issue that churches may face, including parish re-organisations, marriage law, appointment of clergy and the highly complex area of land and property.

The key areas in which we can help include:

We advise eight Church of England dioceses: London, Southwark, Canterbury, Rochester, Chelmsford, Chichester and Europe and, through our Oxford office, the Diocese of Oxford.  In addition we also advise the Anglican Consultative Council and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

With our long experience we also understand the wider context - the unusual framework which makes church matters such a unique challenge for lawyers.

That experience means that we can deliver a fast, sympathetic and relevant service getting to the heart of the matter quickly and efficiently. With this long history, focused expertise and a clear commitment to clients, we play a full part in supporting the church communities of England and Wales.
