Practical Services

The Charity Commission. Property law. Employment regulations. Data protection. These things often fill churches with dread and distract them from the ministry they should be doing. We want to help.

That’s why FIEC offers practical and legal advice to our family of churches.

Practical Advice Line

If you’ve got a question about any of the practical aspects of doing church, our Advice Line is here to help. Every FIEC church gets 30 minutes of free legal advice every year on any new topic, provided by Edward Connor Solicitors.

Got a question? Just call 01858 411569, email practicalservices@fiec.org.uk or use the Contact Form and select ‘Practical Services’.

Please be aware that the Advice Line is subject to the Edward Connor Solicitors’ terms and conditions of service.
