|No longer God's House? (note the curtains)|
Well oddly - as yesterday I mentioned the United Reform Church -I find that this church was until 1991 that particular denomination.
Having seen it I realise that there are quite a large number of churches that are no longer used for worship (in a conventional sense anyway) - how does this work?
|Another religious sign|
The church was de-consecrated in 1991 I wonder is it that the congregation was too small (well you can see here an example of a flat there now) or that the money was needed to support the church?
Well de-consecration means that the site can be used for another building or the use can be then secular.
Oddly having looked up the procedure for the change of use service I saw a rather sparky interaction over the Roman Catholic procedure but here's a reasonable run through of what might be done
I suppose in reality that there are changes of use going on for churches near this one is a former cinema that's now a church - it's near St Aidan's Way. (the Irish Saint who restored Christianity to England - Saint's day 31st August )
