The Warwickshire and Coventry Churches Historic Trust is a registered charity, non-religious 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 main fundraising event each year is Ride and Stride which takes place on the second Saturday of September (14th September 2019). See more information here.
We have a brand new event this year on Saturday September 14th called the Bard’s Ride: two organised bike rides around the stunning South Warwickshire countryside. There will be a 40-mile and a 18-mile route to suit both experienced cyclists and families. There will also be an organised Bard’s Walk around some of the churches. Click here for more information.
If you have any queries about Ride and Stride, the Bard’s Ride or the work of the WCHCT, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you very much for your support.
In the last 3 years we have supported churches with Grants
from the Trust and NCT grants totalling over £38,000.
