Church Recorders (NADFAS)

Church Recorders are part of The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS)- a leading arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local Societies and national events.

Church Recorders are volunteers who record the contents of a church (inventory) and present an illustrated book detailing each item and its history. For more information, see the Church Recorders Website
