What We Do
We were founded in 1982 in response to the attempt to demolish Union Chapel and have been working ever since to help preserve this Grade 1 listed building.
We hold work days throughout the year with the current focus being on Union Chapel’s collection of documents and ephemera.
Library & Archive Work
The Friend’s Archive Group work towards cataloguing the Chapel’s extensive collection of papers, books and records. We are also looking for ways to find a sustainable future of this archive.
We are currently raising money to support the work of the Organ Project.
