EASA Summer Conference 2018: Lincoln

Friday, 22nd to Sunday, 24th June 2018

The Best Western Bentley Hotel, South Hykeham, Lincoln



There is a clear link between the design and date (early 1960s) of the Church of the Holy Trinity, in the suburb of Twydall, Gillingham that we visited during the Spring Conference last March and our first visit of the Summer Conference, when we shall look at St John the Baptist Church at Ermine, located in one of Lincoln’s post-war northern suburbs. Both churches have soaring roofs and while the former is awaiting refurbishment, the latter is still fulfilling the role it was originally designed for by its architect Sam Scorer, so the contrast will be quite marked. St John’s also has some very good modern glass by Keith New, who went on to work at Coventry Cathedral, which will be the subject of one of the key talks during the conference. Other talks will look at developing projects to sustain churches in the present environment, but there will be a greater emphasis on talks and visits of both a topical and more technical nature during this conference.
