Church Buildings

Church buildings and graveyards can be sources of great inspiration and are clearly greatly valued in many ways by local communities. In some parts of the diocese, churches combine roles of being centres or landmarks of faith with being the sole open and accessible building where people can gather for religious worship or community events. Whilst historic church buildings require regular maintenance and repair, developing and enhancing what is there can offer a future sustainable use for much-loved buildings and their continuity can help bring stability and focus to our communities.
