FLAT PACK CHURCHES a talk for Hornsey Historical Society by Marianne Zierau
Wednesday 13 May 8pm
Those already familiar with 'tin tabernacles' as well as those curious to learn about these iron churches will enjoy this talk. Illustrations include Bowes Park's Shaftesbury Hall, The growth of the population together with an increased interest in religion in the nineteenth century resulted in an increased demand for churches. In order to keep up with demand it was necessary to construct temporary churches. Iron churches were popular as temporary churches; they were cheap and quick to build. There were thousands of them all over the country of which less than 100 survive. In this talk Marianne Zierau will explore the history of iron churches as well as the history of how they were sold.
