IRM Guide – Checklists


AllChurches Bureau comprises representatives from denominations of the Christian churches in New Zealand. The AllChurches Bureau first met as an independent body in 1999.

Members meet regularly to monitor a range of risk management issues and concerns affecting all the churches, often in response to central government and local territorial authority policies and legislation. Insurance is a key component of the work.

Denominations currently included in AllChurches are the ACTS Churches, Anglican, Assemblies of God, Baptist, Christian Churches NZ, Congregational, Elim, Lutheran, Methodist and Presbyterian.

The loss Prevention Check Lists have been professionally designed to assist  parishes in better practice and management of property audit and daily maintenance and to identify areas that may present risk.
