Table 2 from the paper (see below) presents 33 church conversions in terms of three categories. A fourth category involves no change. That is, the site of a church remains religious in form and function. Church sites that remained as places of worship were not formally studied for the Hackworth and Gullikson (2013) research project.
|Complete replacement||Congregation sells church and land to developer; developer demolishes church; replaces with use that has no physical or functional reference to the church that existed before||Secular||Secular||A|
|Mixed form, secular function||Congregation sells church and land to developer; developer demolishes or converts the church to residences but replaces at least some element or reminder of that church; examples: name, symbols, facade, plaque||Secular||Mixed||B|
|Mixed function and form||Congregation sells all or part of their church and land to a developer who builds around all or part of their initial place of worship; a new church (or some other service extension of the church) is built or renovated on site||Mixed||Mixed||C|
