As per the Insurance of Property Ordinance, our insurance programme provides cover against loss or damage of the buildings, improvements, and property of our churches and ministries.

Who & What is Covered

The buildings and contents of all churches and ministries of the Anglican Diocese of Adelaide, its workers and volunteers. This includes buildings and improvements at churches, halls, and rectories, as well as items owned by the churches - or volunteers working for the church - wherever the items are located, including 'offsite' such as at hired halls.

All buildings and contents are automatically covered by our policies once they come into possession. Every year, the Synod undertakes a review of the insured value of buildings and their contents, and at that time new property would be added to the declared value. Correspondence relating to this is sent out annually around August, to the Treasurer & Wardens of each church.


The contents of Rectories are excluded from cover, except where the church clearly owns an item (E.g. dishwasher, or furniture which 'comes with the house').

  • For claims which might be expected to exceed $10,000, please contact Diocesan Office. Such claims will be handled by an Insurance Assessor.
