Search begins for best new church in the country


The medal was presented by Prince Nicholas von Preussen at an award ceremony held at Westminster Cathedral Hall on Thursday 1 November. The Gold Medal was the gift of King Freidrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia in 1857 who was highly impressed with British Victorian church architecture. It was originally presented to the Incorporated Church Building Society in 1857. The medal has been presented annually to architects for repair and conservation projects since 1984 when the medal was re-discovered during an office move. The work of the Incorporated Church Building Society is now administered by the National Churches Trust and the award is sponsored jointly by the Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association and the National Churches Trust and is open to any Christian denomination. Photos of the King of Prussia Gold Medal and also of the Presidents’ Award Chalice can be viewed on our flickr site.
