Church Recorders are The Arts Society volunteers who make records of the contents of our national churches, thereby promoting the recognition and preservation of the rich artistic heritage to be found in places of worship of all religions. The items are described in detail and their history researched. All the material is then compiled into a book illustrated with photographs and drawings. This is presented to the church and copies are sent to national institutions.

Following the successful completion of Church Recording at St Lawrence Church, Chobham last year, the next project will be at St Michael & St Mary Magdalene Church at Easthampstead. This will be a joint project involving Englemere, Windlebrook and Camberley Arts Societies with also members from Ascot and Woking participating. Some parishioners will also be helping with project.

St Michael & St Mary Magdalene Church is renowned for its Burne-Jones & William Morris windows and additionally it has many fascinating artefacts. There are several memorials, a part of the old rood screen and the Arms of Charles 1 and 11. There has been an initial meeting and Church Recording will start in earnest in the coming months.
