The Centre for Parish Church Studies closed in 2022


The Centre for Parish Church Studies was set up as part of the educational programme of Flintspiration in 2017. It offered opportunities to learn about all aspects of parish churches – historical, social, archaeological, liturgical, and architectural, on both a local and a national basis. Events took the form of day-schools, weekly courses, tours, and practical sessions. However, as a result of the covid pandemic, it became impossible to revive, and so was formally closed in 2022.

The CPCS was directed by Dr Nicholas Groves, and Dr Janina Ramirez was its patron. The Advisory Board included Dr Kristi Bain, The Revd. Dr Allan Barton, Dr John Beal, Mark Wilson, John Vigar and Dr Emma Wells.
