David Laidler Stage 3 Dissertation - The Reuse of Redundant Churches in the Church of England

  • Description

    Published on Feb 21, 2015. "The Reuse of Redundant Churches in the Church of England: Has The Spirit of the Church been lost?Historically, Church power in England was high – over time with the changes in society, the church has become less important to everyday life. Gradually overtime less people attended church causing attendance numbers to decline. This has resulted in churches lacking funding to stay open and eventually becoming made redundant. New uses have been found for these churches preventing their demolition. Current uses of Church of England churches across England are shown to be mainly residential with churches reused as monuments and for civic, cultural or community uses. Case studies have determined the effectiveness of their transformation where full use has been made if the church structure and other designs have made use of new substructures that have not affected the original church structure. Unfortunately some uses have had total disregard for the original church structure."
