Church Recording promotes the recognition and preservation of the rich artistic heritage in places of worship by recording the contents of churches of all religions. Participating churches are presented with an illustrated book detailing each item and its history. Copies are also sent to national institutions.

Church Recorders work in teams and our local team includes members from our society and from the Sandwich Evening Decorative & Fine Arts Society. The last project involving our recorders was for St Martin’s Church, Great Mongeham and the completed record was presented to the church at a Sunday morning service in 2012. Further copies were sent to the Cathedral Archives, the Victoria and Albert Art Library, the Church authority and the Heritage Archive.

Our present project is recording St Nicholas Church, Ringwould, a small church near Deal.

Further offers of help would be most welcome and those interested should contact Mollie Robinson on 01304 812563.
