On Wednesday afternoon I was at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to talk about how we might encourage the use of church buildings for cultural activities. I met Jeremy Dann from DCMS and Rebecca Payne and Ruth Watkinson from the Church of England and we talked about promoting the use of churches to voluntary arts groups. I was interested to learn that churches can now declare themselves ‘partially redundant’ in order to be able to lease part of the building to a community group or other organisation. I was also keen to discuss how we might promote the best practice information and advice available from Voluntary Arts to churches who organise and promote their own arts activities.
