Historic Religious Building Alliance

The Historic Religious Buildings Alliance was set up in 2008. We bring together those working for a secure future for historic religious buildings.

We are an independently-funded group within the The Heritage Alliance (established in 2002 as Heritage Link). This is the biggest alliance of heritage interests in the UK and was set up to promote the central role of the non-Government movement in the heritage sector.
