There is a building in my town called "Fruitland Grange". By Definition a grange is like a granary barn, or other barn type building. But this building is being used like a community hall, sometimes as a church. So how I would i tag this building?

What does the building actually look like? Does it fit the definition you gave?

If it looks like a barn, map it as building=barn (or building=granary_barn).

Add a node for the "church": amenity=place_of_worship + religion + denomination and a node for the "community hall": amenity=community_centre inside the building.

The building tag refers to the type of building, not its usage.

I used asked a question about building indicate type on the tagging mailing list, as I see some buildings on the wiki-page where we take the usage into account, e.g. cathedral.
