We’ve seen in a previous Urban Ghosts report that shifting demographics, population decline and increased secularisation have had devastating consequences for large parish churches as well as small rural chapels. But while ruin and dereliction are so often the unintended consequences of abandonment, a little inspiration and imagination has seen some former churches repurposed for modern use. We explore a selection of them here, from contemporary homes to bars, bookshops, studios and even a simple garage.
