To all Ecumenical Insurance Company policyholders.
You will by now have received a letter from us advising of the proposed transfer of your Ecumenical church insurance policy to Ansvar Insurance Company.
The transfer, proposed from 11.59pm on 31 December, is subject to High Court approval. Access Insurance will continue to act for you as your agent in advising you on how best to protect your assets and liabilities and to collect premiums.
Both companies are wholly owned subsidiaries of Ecclesiastical Insurance Office plc. The proposed transfer will enable a reduction in overheads.
Ansvar are familiar with the insurance needs of churches belonging to several denominations including the Methodist Church, the United Reformed Church and the Baptist Union of Great Britain. They specialise in providing for the insurance of "not for profit" organisations.
Access Insurance continue to specialise in church and charity insurance and will be delighted to work with you to review your church or charity insurance requirements.
