Insurance

Churches of Christ Insurance is ready to process your claim with ease and efficiency, restoring your community to working order as soon as possible.

 

Churches of Christ Insurance is a national program that provides considerable benefits to
each State Conference of Churches of Christ. Combining the insurance needs across
churches and related ministry organisations means that we can achieve significant cost
savings and provide a robust suite of cover. The direct benefit to Churches of Christ in
Western Australia is that we are able to fund operational support services to churches (and
not increase affiliation fees which have remained constant since 2006) as a result of
managing our own self-insured scheme.

 

The insurance scheme encompasses the following policies:

  • Property Damage (ISR) covering both Material Damage and Business Interruption
  • Public Liability
  • Professional Indemnity
  • Management Liability
  • Crime
  • Personal Accident for Volunteers and Youth
  • Personal Accident for Ministers
  • Cyber Liability
  • Travel

 

You will find all kinds of useful information about risk planning and management at the Churches of Christ Insurance website.

To find out if your church is prepared in all seasons and events, visit the Churches of Christ Insurance website for helpful articles.
