About the Friends

The Friends of Friendless Churches campaigns for and rescues redundant historic churches threatened by demolition and decay. We now own nearly 50 former places of worship, half in England, half in Wales. We preserve these buildings intact 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 our churches is a considerable financial challenge. We rely a great deal 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, we urge you to join us.
