Ecclesiastical was launched in the 19th century as an insurance company to provide protection for Anglican churches.
It still specialises in this type of protection, but today also offers home insurance, mortgages and investments for families. It is owned by a charity, Allchurches Trust Limited.
If you’re a member of the clergy, Ecclesiastical can provide you with enhanced cover and a 30% saving on your premium. Meanwhile, those who work in churches but aren’t members of the clergy can qualify for a 25% discount.
