unstar this property answer text <p>The parish of Scrooby is currently in interregnum. Having spoken with the churchwarden I understand that the Parish Council, congregation and community have taken the decision to improve the facilities in the nearby village hall, rather than at St Wilfrid’s. The decision was in part a consequence of the difficulty of finding a practical and cost effective way to connect the church with the local sewerage network. The circumstances of this particular case also highlight the wider issue of the capacity of volunteers to take on infrastructure projects in complex historic buildings, alongside their other voluntary duties, in a church where there is a vacancy.</p><p>The Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham is committed to working with parishes to help them deliver new facilities, including toilets, to enable wider use of church buildings. Further support and advice on building projects is available from the Church Buildings Council of the Church of England: <a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.churchcare.co.uk%2F&amp;data=02%7C01%7Canna.caffell%40parliament.uk%7C53cc10203ace47fd1ed108d4d416e88d%7C1ce6dd9eb3374088be5e8dbbec04b34a%7C0%7C0%7C636366642233807387&amp;sdata=72%2F4uqw3w7Ns6bqyMg%2BLPjevf%2FUsHSuYBIssAlLw6v4%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">http://www.churchcare.co.uk/</a></p>

The decision was in part a consequence of the difficulty of finding a practical and cost-effective way to connect the church with the local sewerage network.</p><p>As each church is unique, the Parochial Church Council with the help of the Diocesan Advisory Committee needs to consider how best any new facilities can be accommodated. There may be cases where the space will not comfortably accommodate a toilet or indeed a kitchen, office or meeting room, alongside the liturgical space. There may also be technical or practical difficulties, as in this case.</p>
