The Church for the Unemployed Clergy
Due to decreasing church-attendance, the ‘Zusammenschluss der Kirchegeminden Reformierten Zürich’ proposes to consolidate church administration, staff and maintenance. With this move, local pastors, janitors, organists, etc would be replaced by a small, centralized cadre of rotating ecclesiastical staff. This project offers a “voluntary prison” for the jobless clergy and staff; a church where they can choose to continue preaching, performing and fixing—only now the congregation consists of their peers rather than the lay public.
