How Church Maintenance Can Help Your Community
Four ways that your church’s community can benefit from maintenance.
Many church owners like to see themselves as above such things as ‘maintenance’ – these people believe that the archaic nature of their buildings are part of their charm and therefore should be retained in someway.
Those who forgo maintenance for this reason, or any other, should remember that the longer they delay the upkeep of their building the more difficult (and more costly) the job will eventually be.
There are many benefits to regularly maintaining your church, these vary from the glaringly obvious to the more subtle. We’ve compiled a list of just a few of the reasons why you should keep your church regularly maintained and how it could help your community in the long run:
Maintaining your church makes it more attractive
Whilst some may prefer the ornate majesty of a dilapidated church, the truth is that no one wants to spend time in an old, dusty building. By hiring a team to maintain your church on a regular basis, you can guarantee that your building remains in good nick, keeping it (hopefully) looking as grand as it did when it was first built. Also, your community will be much more likely to make use of the spaces in your building if you keep them looking good.
Church maintenance is key to keeping your religious establishment relevant and safe.
The church is the wellspring of your community’s spiritual well-being. It is the peaceful centre of your patrons’ lives and should always feel like home to them. Despite this, one of the most important things about your church should be it’s safety standards. If your church is not a safe place to spend time in then why should anyone even think of praying there? Maintaining your church is crucial to keeping safety standards high and should never be underestimated.
Local people can benefit from employment
Church maintenance doesn’t always have to be performed by out of town teams. Most of the time you’ll be able to hire local people to do the small jobs around your church, this achieves the dual result of successfully maintaining your church and helping out your community. There are plenty of cleaning business opportunities present in a church, everything from polishing the floors to the cleaning the oven can be taken on by local people and will go a long way to strengthening your church’s ties with the community.
Sustain the pride that your community has in your church
The congregation of your church should be proud of where they pray. As we all know taking too much pride in anything is not godly, however there is righteousness in taking a certain amount of civic pride in your church building. By regularly maintaining your church, whether that’s by simply keeping it clean or upholding safety standards, you can help to keep your congregation truly proud of their church.
