News: Free Seats for All


Free Seats for All

2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the founding of Incorporated Church Building Society, responsible for the ‘biggest church fundraiser in history’.

Published to mark this anniversary, Free Seats for All: The boom in church building after Waterloo by Gill Hedley brings to light a campaign that led to the building and enlargement of hundreds of churches and also made space in churches available to all for free, rather than rented to an elite few.

Free Seats for All: The Boom in Church Building after Waterloo is out now, published in paperback by Umbria Press
