The Arts Society's Church Recorders are 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.

After being in abeyance for over ten years, in 2016 this Society reformed its Church Recorders Group and has started recording at St Peter's Church, Stonnall, Staffordshire, built in 1823. The group meets on Monday mornings, and if anyone would like further information, or would like to join the group, please contact Gill Bellenie on
