About The Friends

The Friends of Friendless Churches rescues and campaigns for redundant historic churches threatened by demolition, decay and unsympathetic conversion. We now care over 50 former places of worship in England and Wales. We preserve these buildings for the local community and visitors to enjoy. Without us, all of these buildings would no longer be here, or open to the public.

Maintaining and repairing churches is a considerable financial challenge. We rely on the generosity of our members and on the willingness of groups of local Friends to fundraise and to act as our eyes and ears.

If you are interested in historic churches and want to support a charity where your subscription can make a real difference, please do become a member.
