Title: Church Buildings Report
Description: Under the terms of the Mission and Pastoral Measure 2011, when partial or total closure of a consecrated church as a place of regular worship is being considered as an option, the Diocesan Mission and Pastoral Committee must notify the Church Buildings Council. They will prepare a report which is used to help inform discussion regarding the future of the building. The report covers: •the historic and architectural quality and interest of the church as well as others in the area, •the historic and aesthetic qualities of the church and its contents, •special features of any associated churchyards or burial grounds, •appropriate information or advice concerning possible architectural or structural changes to facilitate additional and/or alternative uses should the church continue in use for worship.
