Join us

Membership of the Church Recording Society as a Church Recorder is open to every competent person. There is no discrimination.

  • Our Recorders work in Groups of, ideally, at least 10 and sometimes more than 20. There are smaller Groups. Many Groups work on site between March and October, using the winter for writing and compiling. Some hardy Groups work through the winter.
  • New members are given training by experienced recorders and special training sessions. Sources for research are provided.

Above all, you will have the pleasure of belonging to a Group of like-minded, sociable people – people who love churches, history, learning new skills and working as a team.

Friends Membership and Corporate Membership is for anyone interested in the Society’s work.

All Members:

  • Receive our newsletters
  • Are invited to suitable events and may attend the Members meetings
  • Are encouraged to take an active interest
