There are plans to turn the site in Forest Hill into flats, but the artist Henrik Delehag says the deconsecrated church is still a community focal point, and should be saved and used by other artists.
As the current tenant, he has made himself a self-appointed custodian, and is now aiming to raise enough to purchase the property from his private landlord to safeguard its future.
He’s been speaking to Tanya.
