10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Church of All Souls, Bolton


Our 19th BRICK Workshop will be delivered in partnership with the Churches Conservation Trust, and will focus on churches and how to find alternative uses for the space if they cannot be used solely as places of worship.

The event will feature presentations, case studies, Q&A sessions, group discussions on legal context for new and extended uses, asset mapping and funding options for your historic church projects. These events are also fantastic networking opportunities for community groups and not-for-profit organisations.

Registration begins at 9:30am and the workshop runs 10:00am until 4:30pm.

Our expert speakers will discuss:

  • Historic parish churches: spaces for the 21st century
  • New design in historic churches
  • Heritage, enterprise and community space within a Victorian church
  • Case Study: St Michael and All Angels and the Breathing Space project
  • Case Study: St Mary’s Church, Brighton and creating an events space within a living church

To make sure that as many people as possible can take part, our early bird registration fee is only £19. Lunch and refreshments are included. We also offer travel bursaries (£25 per person) – get in touch to apply.

We want to ensure that we are tailoring the BRICK programme to suit the needs of those in the heritage regeneration sector, so as part of the registration process you will need to complete a brief survey, which won’t take more than ten minutes.

During lunch, there will be the opportunity to discuss the digital promotion of your project (Social media, website and email) with our digital coordinator Claire Mykura. Please let us know in advance if this would be of interest.


This event is fully booked.
