Church Recording


The society has an active group of Church Recorders: volunteers who make records of the contents of our national churches, thereby promoting the recognition and preservation of the rich artistic heritage to be found in places of worship of all religions.
The items are described in detail and their history researched. All the material is then compiled into a book illustrated with photographs and drawings. This is presented to the church and copies are sent to national institutions.
Woking DFAS Church recorders are working on their eighth record having completed their work on seven churches
