Running a Community Business from a Place of Worship in Wales

September 12 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Running a Community Business from a Place of Worship in Wales (online)

How to solve a community’s lack of a business venue and increase church footfall and outreach in your community.  Sympathetic, appropriate and complementary use of space in halls or other buildings could present viable options.

Learning Objectives:

Community owned businesses are proven way to provide vital services on which communities depend including access to food provisions, cash, social meeting spaces or health-related services.

These businesses, which range from shops and hubs to cafes and  libraries that are run by the community, for the community in a co-operative and democratic way so they also address a wide range of issues affecting today’s society, including isolation and loneliness, mental health and wellbeing, employment and skills development, health care and education.

One problem faced by many community groups looking to set up a community business is lack of a suitable venue from which to operate. At the same time many places of worship, often much loved, historic buildings, are seeking new ways to ensure they can remain open and sustainable into the future.  Read more in link below.
