Membership benefits

Friends of Friendless Churches magazine

Friends receive two FoFC magazines every year. Our magazine is highly regarded and much appreciated by members for its comprehensive and engaging round-up of church conservation and heritage sector news, as well as lively stories about the churches in our care.

Membership Pack

Browse your printed guide to FoFC churches to learn more about your favourite churches and discover new places to visit in England and Wales. Your pack also includes a set of beautiful postcards.

Supporting the churches

Your membership makes a crucial difference to our churches, and to many more redundant, vulnerable places of worship that need our help. As a Friend, your membership fees could help fund the repair of a medieval timber nave roof, restore a Victorian stained glass window to its dazzling former glory, or conserve an 18th century monument.
