Conservation Volunteering @ St Mary Mags

mary_mags5
Currently on the ‘Buildings at risk’ register, St Mary Magdalene is a beautiful Grade 1 listed church widely recognised as George Edmund Street’s masterpiece in London. A Heritage Lottery Fund grant will now ensure that it can be enjoyed by future generations. Once this work is done the church will also serve as a bustling community and heritage space, but this will not be possible without a team of volunteers to assist the conservators with their work.
As part of the Conservation Volunteer team you will:

  • Work as part of a group of volunteers to share a sense of achievement as you bring back to life this extraordinary historic building.
  • Be amongst the first to re-discover its original vibrant colours and fine craftsmanship.
  • Explore a range of conservation tasks, including the opportunity to work on the painted ceiling.
  • Receive training in conservation principles and techniques.
  • Learn about careers in conservation, and the wider heritage and cultural sectors, while also gaining skills and experience transferable to other future employment.

This will suit people who…

  • Like working as part of a team, but also thrive when working independently.
  • Those who love the challenge of learning new skills and contributing something to their community!
  • Plus those with an interest in historic buildings and their care, or those interested in pursuing a career in conservation. All training is given – no prior experience is necessary.

Time commitment: will vary to suit volunteer needs.

Minimum 4 hour session.
