About ChurchCare

Tuesday 25 - Thursday 27 September 2018 (Salisbury)

The conference is due to be held in Salisbury and bookings for this event shall be available soon.

A city centre resource church is a church which, working closely with the local bishop, intentionally resources mission across a city, by planting and revitalising churches, developing leaders and providing other resources for mission. Its aim is to help evangelise the city and transform society.

The Resource Church Guidance note will assist resource churches in putting forward proposals for adaptation of existing church buildings. By setting out the context of the resource church it will help consultees understand the significance of a resource church to the mission of the diocese.

The churches drawn from each of the Church of England’s 42 dioceses are extraordinary buildings and many of them contain exceptional treasures. Church buildings tell the story of Christianity in England. They define the landscape and in our island nation quickly become landmarks by sea and land. Churches preserve local stories and mark significant events in our national history. Since Henry VIII broke with Rome in 1534 the Monarch is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England and as the Established Church all its church buildings belong to everyone.

With the churches team at Churchcare I am amazed as I travel around the country at how imaginatively churches are now being used and at how well maintained, mostly by volunteer congregations and communities, they are. This book pays tribute to the remarkable unsung heroes of our church buildings, the many volunteers who keep them open and sustainable. I hope too it will encourage many more to visit, enjoy and support the Church of England’s unique heritage of nearly 16,000 church buildings.
