Items for disposal

The following surplus items are currently available from the Diocese of Chester. Please contact the DAC Office for more details. Please note that a faculty will normally be required for any fixture or fitting being installed in a church. Fonts and altars are available only for use in places of worship, with the permission of the Bishop. Further items are also available from both closed and open churches, so if you have a specific requirement please contact the DAC Office who may be able to help.

Minor items (e.g. hassocks, choir robes, hymn books) not requiring a faculty for their transfer can be advertised and acquired via the diocesan swap shop, but please check that the item you propose to swap or acquire is covered by the diocesan Minor Works provisions.
