Welcome to
Warwickshire &
Coventry Historic
Churches Trust

The Warwickshire and Coventry Churches Historic Trust is a registered charity, entirely non-denominational and self-supporting.

We maintain churches, chapels and meeting rooms in Warwickshire – and areas of the West Midlands that are also within the Diocese of Coventry – as centres of worship and of local community. Regular upkeep of the fabric of our historic buildings is vital to their preservation as an essential part of our architectural and cultural heritage. To preserve our churches for future generations to enjoy, our Trust Fund provides grants for works of repair and maintenance and can include conservation of fixtures and fittings and chattels.

Our latest exciting news is that we are running a brand new heritage event, Shakespeare’s Scenery Cycle Ride, on the weekend of 30th June and 1st July 2018  –  please click here to see the message of support from our Paton, Dame Judi Dench and details about how to take part.  






Please get in touch with us for any queries you may have. Thank you for your support.
