Pinnacle magazine

New members’ magazine launched

October 2016 saw the launch of our exciting new magazine, Pinnacle.  The publication will be issued three times a year, with members receiving complementary copies mailed directly to their homes.

With news, features and interviews covering the whole range of our work (not to mention a fantastic selection of photos), Pinnacle is unmissable reading for all lovers of historic church buildings, ancient construction techniques and heritage craft skills, innovative outreach projects and beautiful spiritual spaces.
