We are delighted that you will be joining us as a member – simply select the membership type you wish to purchase and then ‘buy now’; payment is taken via Paypal. Any questions? Contact the office on 020 7236 3934.
Membership includes three newsletters per year, Winter/Spring, Summer, and Autumn, and a copy of the AMS ‘Transactions’ published in spring.
All members are entitled to attend AGMs of both organisations, and receive invitations to our Autumn Visits – this year we went to 575 Wandsworth Road, Harmondsworth Barn, the Building Crafts College and St Mary Magdalene Paddington – and our Annual Lecture. In the Welcome Pack, new members will receive:
- A welcome letter from us at St Ann’s Vestry Hall
- Two AMS & FFC postcards
- The current edition of our 60-page newsletter packed with news of our activities, book reviews, and dates for your diary
- Our ‘Transactions,’ an annual journal of new scholarly essays on all aspects of historic buildings
- Details and access information on the 50+ churches owned by the Friends, our sister charity
Please note: Due to current changes to our working patterns, we will be sending out virtual welcome packs for those joining from 16/03/2020 onwards, which will be received by email. You should then receive subsequent publications as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience.
The gift of Life Membership is also available at £1000 (Individual), for those who wish to make a more substantial commitment to our work.
If you are a UK taxpayer, we can reclaim Gift Aid on your membership fees which will allow your donation to go even further. By selecting ‘With Gift Aid’ from the drop-down menus below, you are agreeing to the following statement:
“Please treat as Gift Aid all qualifying gifts of money made in the past four years and all future gifts of money that I make from the date of this declaration as Gift Aid donations. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand the Society will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give and that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.”
A subscription to the AMS and Friends of Friendless Churches makes a great present. To purchase, just select the option for Gift Membership, choose ‘Yes’ under ‘Is this a gift?’ and enter the name and address of the recipient in the box. If you would like us to send the welcome pack direct to the recipient, you can add a gift message. Otherwise, please use this box to request delivery to your own address.
Renew your membership by Direct Debit on 1 January each year
If you are joining us as a new member, once you have taken out membership via PayPal please also consider filling out a Direct Debit form so future subscription payments can be taken automatically on 1 January each year, without the need for reminders. This is of huge help to us.
If you are an existing member and would like to switch to Direct Debit for all membership renewals from 2021, click through to fill out the form. (Please note this will not cancel any Standing Orders you have active – you will need to contact your bank to do this.)
For any questions about Direct Debits, please call the office on 020 7236 3934.
