Visiting Churches

Visiting Churches

We are a non-religious group that is interested in churches and other places of worship – their architecture, monuments, art and history – and the people who have been associated with them over the years.

We generally arrange guided tours of interesting buildings during spring, summer and autumn, and a programme of talks in winter.

Everyone is welcome at all our events; although we don't worship together there is always time during our visits for those who would like some quiet reflection.

These are some of the talks we have arranged, and places we have visited. (Please give Di any missing information!)

Details of the next visit will be in the November newsletter.

If you would like to help organise a trip, please contact Di.
