Friends of Friendless Churches, London, United Kingdom . This Remembrance Sunday we reflect on the impact of the First World War on our churches - on inspirational art created in memory of loved ones lost, the legacy left by artists fleeing war, churches that fell into dereliction because of it - and those that simply refuse to be defeated.

An article exploring the origins, development and current work of the Friends of Friendless Churches by Matthew Saunders. The title tells it all. In the first decade of the new organisation there were campaigns for particular churches, notably St Mary at Quay, Ipswich, St Peter’s Wolfamcote in Warwickshire, Holnest in Dorset and, the first church repaired with Friends’ funds, that at Willingale Spain in Essex. But all the time Ivor felt the future lay with a new formal body paid for by the Church and State.

The Friends of Friendless Churches exist to save beautiful and historic places of worship from demolition or degradation. Founded in 1957 by the devout journalist and author Ivor Bulmer-Thomas, the Friends now own thirty-eight former places of worship, half in England, half in Wales, which they preserve, undertake repair on where necessary and make accessible as peaceful spaces to visitors and the local community. This book, with a Preface by Sir Simon Jenkins and a Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales, details all thirty eight buildings, with photographs that touchingly record these former churches and celebrate the work of the Friends. Included are a short history of the Friends of Friendless Churches, a glossary of terms, and information on visiting the churches.
