Churches have many roles in today’s world as places of worship, concert venues, tourist attractions, even domestic dwellings or ruins.  This show brings a selection of these buildings to our attention and reminds us that John Betjeman summed it up so clearly in his poem “Churchyards” when he wrote “Our churches are our history shown / In wood and glass and iron and stone”.
