More than 100 people took part in a consultation on the future uses of St Mary’s Church in Ramsey, following an open event held at the venue.
The church, in St Mary’s Road, is looking for a new lease of life, with the parochial church council and congregation eager that the historic facility should be put to greater use outside of regular services.
The consultation was held on April 21 and saw residents invited to share their thoughts on how the church could be used by the community.
North West Cambridgeshire MP Shailesh Vara was among those who visited the church to see the repair works required and add their views on the facilities required in the village.
As vital repair works need to be completed, church officials felt it was the perfect time to make alterations to the building so it can be suitable for the community to use for other purposes.

Although parishioners are keen for its central function as a church to continue, they invited residents to have their say about what they want the space to be used for during the week.
MP Shailesh Vara said: “This is a lovely church which plays a key role in the community. It is important that we maintain it as a focal point and I and others are determined to do all we can to ensure that happens.”
