Welcome to the Church of England Online Faculty System and Church Heritage Record
Since the 1st April 2020, the Faculty rules that govern how churches manage their buildings, churchyards and contents have changed and a new process now exists for all cases submitted on the Online System since the 1st April 2020.
As part of these new rules, a number of works have been added to the List A (where permission is not required) and List B items (where archdeacon consent is required).
Please be aware that there are now two different processes available for Faculty cases, one for cases submitted under the 2015 rules, and one for cases submitted under the 2019 legislation.
Guidance on these new changes is available in our Help section shortly.
