Update from the research team at the Cambridge Judge Business School
Geoffrey Hunter (Head of Church Buildings and Pastoral for the Diocese of Ely) met with the research team from the Judge business school this week and reported “It's great to be able to report that the team at the Cambridge Judge Business School have now undertaken all 37 scoping case studies of churches in the Diocese of Ely. The data gathered in the case studies is being used to feed into the focus of the second year of the project - the audit of buildings and communities as envisaged in the Diocesan Strategy Ely 2025.”
The data from each case study is being compiled into a published booklet - fourteen to date, with more being published at a rate of four a month.
You can read or download the case studies here.
REACH Ely (Reimagining Churches as Community Assets for the Common Good) is a three-year project to help communities make fuller use of their historic churches. The project is implemented by the Diocese of Ely and Cambridge Judge Business School with the support of Allchurches Trust and Historic England.
