Diocese of Portsmouth


Your house is first and foremost a home for you and your family, and the handbook guidelines seek to reflect that. It is also, of course, a very valuable physical resource and we need to ensure that it is maintained well, both for you and for future generations.

The property handbook will help to clarify what are everyone’s responsibilities are and will be updated from time to time by the Property Sub Committee.
