Topic - Future of churches

MG - on 21 Nov 2012
So, the CoE has gone down the wing-nut route and will presumably accelerate towards utter irrelevance to national life over the next few decades. Fine.

However, they, or rather we, as it is an established church, own a lot of splendid buildings from major cathedrals to small village churches. It would be sad to these either decay or be destroyed by being turned into "worship centres" as a result of the CoEs decline. Is there a case for setting up a body similar to the National Trust for owning and running notable churches so the buildings and grounds survive? If the church wants to hold services in them still, some agreement could be reach in a similar manner the former families of NT properties having some access.
