Church Recorders

Church Recorders are volunteer members of of The Arts Society 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. Church recording is a fascinating occupation providing those involved with an increasing awareness and understanding of church furnishings, both of their religious use and of their artistic provenance. During their research Recorders will invariably need to delve into all sorts of historical records lodged with county and other archives.  Nationally, over 1,700 Church Records have been completed to date.
