Church Recording

Church Recorders promote 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.

Join NADFAS Church Recorders
All Church Recorders must be members of NADFAS - either as Society Members or Affiliate Members. There are NADFAS Societies all over the country, many with Church Recorder groups. Most Church Recorder groups will be happy to invite you to come to the church where they are currently working and find out if it is something you want to do.
