I love our ecclesiastical architectural history (loads of big words - ooh!) and I find them incredible places to encounter God. However I find it difficult when churches are forced to spend lots of energy to keep the buildings in good order on the stregth of insufficient funds. Fortunately there's something that could help free some people and energies up to the work of the Gospel.
There's a petition calling on the government to help churches pay for repairs, building work etc rather than the parishes having to do it all. What a good idea, eh?
So pop over here and sign up
