** Case studies **


These case studies are provided to help you think about what projects and activities might be possible and what you might need to consider, and to give you contact details to find out more.  We are trying to provide as much information as possible about projects in Devon churches, supplemented by information on similar schemes elsewhere in Devon, and in other churches in England.  Please let us know of any case studies which you think should be listed here.

The national Shrinking the Footprint campaign has started building up a database of case studies.
