Several Anglican churches in England are preparing to install luxury "pods" for vacationers within their buildings to defray renovation expenses, bringing together glamorous camping — "glamping" — in old churches, which is being called "champing."

For churches that are strapped for cash, the Church of England is utilizing its scenic charms by charging as much as $1,189 (£890) per week to stay in the church in new living facilities that are being constructed, according to the Telegraph.
