Who we are / what we do
We bring together those working for a secure future for historic religious buildings.
We are an independently-funded group within the The Heritage Alliance (established in 2002 as Heritage Link). This is the biggest alliance of heritage interests in the UK and was set up to promote the central role of the non-Government movement in the heritage sector.
What we do
The Historic Religious Buildings Alliance was set up in 2008. We bring together those working for a secure future for historic religious buildings.
For everyone: Our free e-newsletter keeps everyone up to date with news and events concerning the future of historic religious buildings, and our annual Big Update meeting gives everyone a chance to catch up with the latest developments.
For members: We provide briefings to members on matters of mutual interest, help them share information with each other, and publicise their activities via the e-newsletter. Four times a year we hold briefing meetings, with speakers and discussion. You can find out more about membership here.
Consultations: When appropriate, we provide a communication channel with government for our representative members, on matters affecting historic religious buildings in Great Britain.
Do you think you might be interested in membership (corporate or individual)? – you can find out more here. You can find a list of our corporate members here, and our list of individual members offering services here.
We publish short six-monthly activity summaries about our work.
What we are not
We do not give grants. We are not a religious organisation. We are independent of government (government and its agencies are not eligible to become members, but are often welcome as observers).
