Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

  • Are you a volunteer looking after a listed church or historic place of worship?

  • Do you wonder how to adapt it for the 21st century, or keep it in good repair?

  • Would you like to get help from heritage experts and meet fellow officers?

If so Managing your historic place of worship is for you. The day is designed for church officers and other volunteers responsible for the fabric of a listed place of worship. Some of the East Midlands’ key advisers will be on hand to help you think through your plans for maintaining, repairing, developing and adapting your building – finding solutions which help you sustain and enhance it.

Two bookings can be taken from each congregation. For any queries please contact paul.bodenham@historicengland.org.uk
