Welcome to 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 60 places of worship in England and Wales.
