Sustaining Major Parish Churches: Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities

Author(s): Rebecca Burrows

Major Parish Churches represent some of the most special, significant and well-loved places of worship in England. The Church of England has identified more than 300 'Major Parish Churches'. This is a recognition of historically significant parish church buildings with a different scale of opportunities and challenges faced compared to the vast majority of 12,267 listed Church of England church buildings. This research, funded by Historic England, provides a robust baseline of evidence based on a sample of Major Parish Churches from across the country. We focussed on a large sample of buildings, providing both substantive evidence and individual narrative.
