WHAT IS CHURCH RECORDING?


Church Recorders are Arts Society volunteers who make records of the contents of our national churches. 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.

Since 1981 The Arts Society Colchester has recorded the structure and contents of ten churches - Copford, Layer Marney, East Mersea, Elmstead, Brightlingsea, Abberton, Dedham, Lawford, Fingringhoe and Langham. 

We have members who are experienced in church recording, but are unable to continue this nationally important work without more volunteers.  If you would like to learn about this and are interested in helping, please contact us.
