Your responsibility for church organised events
Whatever your church event - fetes, concerts, garden parties, they are a great way to bring new people into the church family. As the event organisers the church needs to be aware that all entertainment events are subject to the Health and Safety at Work Act.
Planning your church event
Without adequate planning an otherwise successful church event could lead to accidents and injuries. There are lots of things to consider, but the first step in planning any event is a risk assessment. Even if you are planning a small event like a coffee morning you should complete a risk assessment. You can download our template risk assessment form to help you.
You can also find further advice to help with your planning and publicity in our two useful guides we have put together.
You can find more information in our functions guidance notes.
