CHILTERN HILLS AREA

CHURCH RECORDERS are volunteers who make detailed 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.  Church recording is a fascinating occupation providing those involved with an increasing awareness and understanding of Church furnishings, both of their religious use and of their artistic provenance.  There is also an opportunity for those interested to delve into all sorts of archive material.

Celebrations to mark the 2,000th Church Record will be held in 2020.  For more information see http://www.churchrecording.theartssociety.org

CHURCH RECORDING IN THE CHILTERN HILLS AREA

Amersham and Ballinger

Compiling continues on St. Mary, Pitstone and St. Mary, Edelsborough and the Group Leader is working with other recorders at the City of  London church, St. Magnus the Martyr.

Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross

The recording for St. John the Baptist, Little Marlow is almost completed and compiling has started and it is hoped that it will be presented to the church in the summer.  The Group Leader has now started the process of finding a new church to record.

The picture alongside is of All Saints church, Chalfont St Peter, which was recorded by this group in 2001.

Thames/Bucks

The recording for St. Paul, Ellesborough is progressing slowly with some new recorders.

High Wycombe

This new Group is progressing very well and have now been recording for nearly two years.  As with most new groups they are finding it very rewarding and realising what a lot of work is involved.  They have two very enthusiastic leaders who are doing a great job.
