Hi, I’m Tom Whyman, the new research intern at FRH. I’m working with the council members on the Extended Use of Religious Buildings pilot project which is going to collect and present attitudes towards extended use of historic places of worship across Europe. I’m helping to develop a questionnaire to send to relevant parties about attitudes to extended use, and looking at case studies of successful examples of extended use as a way of preserving religious buildings and keeping them open for worship. Eventually, we will produce a publication to present this information in an interesting and accessible way. If anyone wants to get in touch about this project, your expertise would be appreciated!
