Toolkit is to be used around country
4:00pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in Ledbury
A GUIDE for developing churches for wider use created in Herefordshire is being re-launched nationwide.
The Crossing the Threshold toolkit includes information about how church buildings and resources can be used to run a range of community projects.
Hereford diocese community partnership and funding officer Wendy Coombey said the updated guide, which will be launched at an event in Wolverhampton on Thursday, October 17, had been funded by English Heritage for use across the country.
“It’s very exciting because the toolkit will support the on-going work of developing church buildings, updated with all the best practice and guidance, making sure that as many churches and faith communities as possible continue to connect with their local communities and use their buildings as a resource for mission,” she said.
English Heritage’s head of places of worship advice Diana Evans has written a foreword to the new edition and said: “Over the past 10 years the Diocese of Hereford has established a recognised track record in developing and delivering sustainable community projects in church buildings.
“All that learning and good practice has been gathered together in a new and up to date toolkit to provide a step by step guide to developing a capital project, based on sound community development practice and stressing the importance of partnership working involving local people.”
