Mosque / Places of Worship

Churches, Mosques and other places of worship might not be businesses in the most conventional sense, but like a business, they still require comprehensive insurance.

Sadly, places of worship are often susceptible to theft, vandalism or accidental damage and you’ll want to make sure you are insured against this, especially if your building is historic or contains historic artefacts. Stained glass windows, headstones and memorials, fixtures and more are all susceptible to risk, and the cost of repairing or replacing them could place undue strain on your finances.

Just like shops, restaurants or offices, places of worship are liable for anyone on their premises, including members of the public or employees. An unexpected accident could lead to a claim against you and legal fees can be an unwanted expense, even if the claim is trivial or false. And like businesses, places of worship can suffer from business interruption – even if they are predominantly non-profit. A fire or structural collapse could cause you to close your doors while repairs are underway and in addition to this expense, you could also be losing out on collection money, or monies earned by conducting weddings or hiring out the premise. A Places of Worship Insurance policy can be tailored to protect you in all these circumstances.

A basic Places of Worship Insurance can vary, but a typical policy includes:

  • Property damage
  • Theft (including contents, glass, fixtures and more)

This core cover can be expanded with additional options to suit your needs, including:


  • Liabilities (including public liability and employer’s liability)
  • Business interruption
  • Trustees indemnity
  • Legal expenses
  • Personal accident
  • Engineering risk
