Ecclesiastical Law


We provide advice on matters of church and ecclesiastical law to the Anglican Dioceses of both Newcastle and Carlisle and the Trustees For Methodist Church Purposes.

Jane Lowdon is one of a small number of lawyers in the country qualified to act in this area. We also advise many other ecclesiastical organisations on structural, governance, charitable and property matters.

The expertise and experience of our lawyers mean that we can deliver a fast, sympathetic and relevant service getting to the heart of the matter quickly and efficiently.

If you would like any further information or to discuss any related matter, please contact us.

  • Ecclesiastical law;
