50th Anniversary Debate: Who should be responsible for the care of historic churches?
Early Bird Non Member: £25.00
A lively debate in the lecture theatre at the Victoria and Albert Museum
There are 16,000 parish churches in England, many of them representing a great legacy of England’s local culture. However, with congregations dwindling, who is going to look after them in the future?
Join us this September as a journalist, author and CCT Trustee Sir Simon Jenkins chairs the discussion in the first debate of this kind. With panel members including Rev. Sally Hitcher, we explore the complex issue of the care of historic churches, and ask who should be responsible for looking after them.
The audience will have a chance to ask our speakers their questions and enjoy light refreshments during a drinks reception in the Silver Galleries of the V&A Museum.
'50th Anniversary Debate: Who should be responsible for the care of historic churches?' is organised as part of our Golden Anniversary celebrating 50 years of saving historic churches and addressing the challenges parish churches face to secure their future.
