Three great reasons to buy a Friends of Friendless Churches Gift Membership

  1. Your gift helps support the work that we do 365 days per year to rescue, repair and protect 60 beautiful and historic places of worship in England and Wales, and to keep them open wherever possible so that everyone can enjoy them. We simply couldn’t do this without you!
  2. This gift membership is eco-friendly — it creates experiences, not more things.
  3. A membership to the Friends of Friendless Churches is a thoughtful and original present that provides inspiration all year round.

How to purchase a Gift Membership

A one-year membership costs £30 for an individual and £50 for a household.

It’s easy to purchase:

  1. Click the green Buy Gift Membership button below.
  2. Complete the purchase form, selecting ‘Gift Membership’ and entering details for you (the purchaser) and your lucky recipient (the member).
  3. You’ll receive a purchase confirmation email with a link to an editable electronic gift certificate, which you can send to your recipient if you wish.
  4. Within 10 working days, your recipient will receive a new member Welcome Pack (or you can request the pack to be sent to your address if you prefer).

Please order as early as possible for the best chance of postal delivery in time for Christmas. All packs ordered by midnight on Friday 17th December will be sent out by Royal Mail’s recommended 1st class posting date of 21st December. 

Last-minute gift purchases after 17th December will still receive the electronic gift certificate to print or email.
