The Group’s proposals are well identified, that is to bring the building into use for Cultural, Educational and Heritage uses, which will of course help to protect the main volume of the Church, the Organ and Windows as a truly atmospheric space. Small rooms and facilities can be added below the galleries in due course as support to the main activities which will take place in a flexible auditorium or Theatrical space which will be utilised by various groups from in and around the Community. In this way we hope that the Building will be revitalised to a prominence for the people of the town.
