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 Arts Society Sandwich. The latest project involving our recorders was for St Nicholas Church, Ringwould, a small church near Deal and the completed record was presented to the church at a Sunday morning service. Further copies were sent to the Cathedral Archives, the Victoria and Albert Art Library, the Church authority and the Heritage Archive.
