St Columbas' Church, Broughton Moor
An opportunity to develop a project run by the community, for the community
The Parish Council has the opportunity to acquire St Columbas' Church building to hold in trust for the people of Broughton Moor. The aim would be to develop the building as a community resource whilst retaining the possibility that the Diocese could use it for occasional services such as baptisms, weddings and funerals.
We are actively seeking ideas for future uses of the building which would be in keeping with its past but appropriate to the needs of the 21st Century.
What would you like to see there?
Get in touch and let us know.
Your ideas matter.
UPDATE October 2023
The Parish Council has been granted permission for Change of Use from Place of Worship to Community Use and Place of Worship. This was a requirement before the Diocese and Church Commissioners could press ahead with the disposal scheme for the building. We anticipate that this will all be done by the end of 2023 and the building will formally be handed over to the Parish Council to develop for the benefit of the community.
The building is not in a useable state at present so some work will need to be carried out before the doors can be opened to the community again.
Please see the links below for the Church Commissioners' documents relating to the Church disposal scheme.
