The commissioning process

commission4mission aims to work in a fair and professional way both with churches and artists. To this end we ask all commissioning churches to sign a Working Agreement. The framework of this is as follows.

1. Specification The commissioning organisation will provide a written specification for the commission to be agreed by all stakeholders.
2. Preliminary work  commission4mission will prepare designs to the specification. A fee is charged for this work,  and a quote prepared for the commission.
3. Next stage If accepted by the commissioning organisation, up to three amendments can be made to the accepted design. If appropriate, these may be discussed and agreed before a revised design is prepared.
4. Commission fees will be staged and the exact scheduling of payments will be agreed in advance with the commissioning organisation. An initial deposit will always be required.
