There is also a national directory of churches, called A Church Near You, set up by the Church of England. This contains information about many parish churches and the services and events that take place there. It’s FREE for visitors and parishes. It’s a great help to visitors to have accurate information about the churches they might want to visit. Many parishes that have added information to A Church Near You have noticed an increase in visitor numbers.
The organisers say that this site helps people find out:
- which parish they live in (based on the post code search, this is useful for weddings and funerals as well as general churchgoing),
- their nearest church (its distance from their own location and its position on a map),
- what it is like,
- what events and services are happening,
- who to contact to find out more.
Someone from a parish needs to register on the site and take responsibility to maintaining the information; it is not managed centrally.
Here is an example entry for Edmundbyers.
