Declining congregations across Europe have led to mass church closures, and the need to make money by allowing enterprises to take over places of worship.
The Danish capital Copenhagen is no stranger to this phenomenon, and one parish is currently trying to capitalise on one of its more picturesque redundant churches, Sankt Andreas Kirke.
It wants to turn the property into a kindergarten, or a centre for good works.
But this is threatening a slice of the nation’s history and one man’s great passion.
Dr Andre Palsgard is appealing for help to save his organ collection, which is currently housed in Sankt Andreas.
