The idea is only at an early stage and the decision is to be taken by the diocese. Last year the UK Government had a accord with the National Church Institutions (NCIs) of the Church of England, which provided a framework for churches that enable to facilitate such networks. But there are various issues on heavy access charges in some of the areas.
