The Lead on the roof of churches is in place to stop the church from floating away. Churches are so large that when the heating is on it acts like a hot air balloon.
Churches have been seen floating high in the atmosphere where their lead has been stolen (please see Pidgeons for the reason behind this).
Sir Richard Branson is considering using a small church for his next Atlantic crossing.
