Church Recorders are The Arts Society Volunteers who make records of the contents of our national churches, thereby promoting the recognition and preservation of the rich artistic heritage to be found in places of worship of all religions.

Over 1600 churches have been recorded throughout the Country. The items are described in detail and their history researched. All the material is then compiled into a book illustrated with photographs and drawings. Copies of the book are sent to the V & A, the National Monuments Record at Swindon, The Worcester Record Office and the Cathedrals and Church Buildings Library at Church House. A copy is also presented to the church.

Volunteers meet for two hours on alternate Thursday mornings. If you're interested please email us at
