Installing a waterless toilet

As we all know, installing a toilet in your church can make all the difference to what activities can take place there. Many of our rural churches are still not on main drainage so a waterless or dry toilet can be the answer.

Not in one of our regions?

You can still get involved! We can’t have a Regional Support Officer dedicated to every region, but that hasn’t stopped the Maintenance Co-operative movement from spreading. Already local volunteers are taking the initiative to start their own co-operatives, supported by our online resources and a little help from our team over the phone. In some cases we can even help find local trainers to help you to get started. If you are interested in starting a Maintenance Co-op we would love to hear form you, we will do everything that we can to help. Please contact us for more information and to tell us about your plans.
