'Crossing the Threshold' Toolkit
A community development approach to the use of Church Buildings
The'Crossing the Threshold' conference was aimed at helping dioceses and parishes get the best from their buildings for wider community use. The day, in Hereford, was dedicated to sharing best practice in the use of church buildings, and looked at examples of how successful projects are working in and for their communities already. We launched a specially commissioned DVD and Toolkit, produced in partnership with the Herefordshire Council and Shropshire RCC, which can be downloaded from the link below.
The toolkit was produced as a response to demand from parishes at the start of their journey down this road towards returning their buildings to their communities. This is an easy to follow step by step resource containing exactly the sort of information any parish will need to know.
With support and practical guidance we hope it will be possible for more churches to remain open as places of worship but also as places where the wider community can enjoy a whole range of activities and support that will improve the quality of their lives.
