Abstract

Churches in the city of London are an important part of the religious heritage of the UK, but they lag behind other popular heritage sites in terms of promotion and accessibility. The goal of this project was to identify ways to promote the religious heritage of the UK through improved access to and better curation of the art, artifacts, and architecture of churches. We conducted interviews with stakeholders in heritage and access, distributed a survey to members of a religious heritage organization, and visited numerous churches and other heritage sites in London and southeast England. To conclude, we recommend how church administrators and clergy, the Friends of the City Churches, and other religious heritage organizations can improve access to and promotion of religious heritage.
