Church Recording

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 record covers Memorials, Metalwork, Stonework, Woodwork,Textiles, Paintings etc, Library, and Miscellaneous. Each section is described in the same manner covering physical description, materials, date, size, maker, history, donor, inscriptions and references.

When the record is complete the material is then compiled into a book which is illustrated with photographs and drawings. Copies are distributed to the church, the V&A, Church House and, in our case, Surrey History Centre which holds the diocesan copy.

Our Church Recorders are affiliated to the Church Recording Society, the national Society for Church Recording. For more information, visit churchrecordingsociety.org.uk.

Although the Arts Society no longer considers Church Recording as core to the society’s offering, the Woking Arts Society Committee has agreed to support the activities of the Church Recorders (including finance) to enable completion of work in progress at St Mary’s at Wyke, Normandy in 2021.
