Swiss Religious Heritage Day 2023

Church real estate strategies. Criteria and examples

Friday, 1 September 2023

The decline in church membership and church tax revenues poses a major challenge for the use and financing of church properties. How can costs be reduced, how can use be optimised? By renting, selling, building new buildings, giving away building rights, expanding sponsorships? What criteria should be taken into account in church real estate strategies? The Fifth Swiss Church Building Day is dedicated to these current questions. The presentations in the morning will discuss the topic from the perspectives of the church, the preservation of historical monuments, society and the economy. In the afternoon, concrete examples will be presented. The conference is aimed at responsible persons from the church, the preservation of historical monuments and society.

Under the heading "Programme" you will find the detailed programme, under the heading "Papers" the presentations of all papers presented at the conference.
