DAC – the online Faculty System

All applications to the DAC are now done online. Paper copies of documents etc will not be accepted.

Registering with the Church in Wales Online Faculty System

The Online Faculty System (OFS) and the Church Heritage Cymru (CHC) database are currently located on the same website, and it is this website that Applicants/Petitioners need to register with. Once registered, Applicants/Petitioners have access to an extra Applications tab which displays on a Dashboard where faculty applications can be viewed.

Registering with the OFS is quick and easy. You will be required to fill in some details about yourself, choose email preferences, select your role (Applicant in this case), and the church and diocese to which you belong. Once you have created your account, you will receive an automatic email acknowledging your registration and asking you to verify your email address by clicking on a link. An Administrator will then approve your account before you can sign in. Once the account has been approved, you will receive another confirmation email with a link to the OFS.

The quickest way to access the Registration screen of the OFS/CHC is to hold down your CTRL key and click on the following URL: https://churchheritagecymru.org.uk/Secure/Register.aspx?returnurl=%2f

Alternately, you can open your web browser (eg. Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc,) and copy and paste the above URL into the address line at the top of the screen.

If you are still unsure then please contact the DAC Secretary Mrs Jan Every, who is based at the Diocesan Office, Abergwili, Carmarthen SA31 2JG, Tel No: 01267 236145 or email her
