Welcome to
Warwickshire &
Coventry Historic
Churches Trust


Many thanks  to everyone who took part in our ‘socially distanced’ Ride and Stride on Saturday 12th September 2020. We would love to see any photos that you can share, so please email them to admin@warwickshirechurches.org.uk

If you have any outstanding donations from Ride and Stride, please send them to our Treasurer at the address on our Contacts page. We are very grateful for all the donations we have received and are looking forward to Ride and Stride 2021 when hopefully all will be back to normal. We are starting to plan Bard’s Ride 2021 too and will be in putting information on our website in the early part of next year.


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 events each year are Ride and Stride wand Bard’s Ride which take place on the second Saturday of September.

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 admin@warwickshirechurches.org.uk .

Thank you very much for your support.

    Some facts about
    Warwickshire churches

    There are about 300 churches in the County which need your support for repair and maintenance.

    Warwickshire churches, the majority of which are historically important, receive no government funding, unlike in other European countries.

    Surveys have shown that 86% of the population have visited a place of worship in the previous 12 months.
