Who are the Friends of Friendless Churches?

We rescue and protect historic places of worship in England and Wales.

Over the centuries, churches have fallen out of use for many reasons. But we believe that these buildings represent the spiritual and artistic investment of generations, that they belong to all of us, and should be preserved for the future. We currently care for more than 60 places of worship in England and Wales. Learn more
