Good Afternoon from @3rdager and 3rd Age Hostelling and Housing/Sparkle Housing Co-operative, a start-up social enterprise/charity to be based initially in Stretford in Greater Manchester and in Llanfairfechan, in Conwy North Wales: walkers/cyclists' hostels/cafe/community hubs. In Llanfairfechan, Conwy in North Wales, 3ahh owns a semi-derelict property suitable for our hostel/shop/cafe/community housing hub, opposite an architecturally uninteresting catholic church which sits alongside Llanfairfechan's Town Hall in the centre of the village. The rather sad area to the rear of the church abuts the river that passes through the village, as does the Town Hall building, but the river cannot be seen from the centre of the village. If the church was willing to either relocate and share with another church in the village or to allow a street market to be run in conjunction with the Town Hall it would introduce some life to what is a pretty dead area in the centre of the village high street. https://www.facebook

Grant query! Previously our Library group gained a grant from the Bright Ideas fund to try to set up as a community library of some sorts. Unfortunately, we had to hand it back because the library space was transferred to the NHS instead. As we couldn't afford, as a community, to buy the Council out of their contract. (So we are now homeless). Will this go against us if we apply through you.

has the experience of churches hosting these services and offers led to any wider theological/dogmatic reflections, which may in turn spur diocese to encourage other churches to seek to do/stimulate similar?

Llanfairfechan has c.7 church buildings, some of those are tiny in tabernacles but in prime village/town centre locations. Does Plunkett have any examples of congregations sharing churches in order to free up these plots for community use? https://www.facebook.com/3rdager
