Every Church Counts
With hundreds of churches facing closure, a national plan is urgently needed to help secure their future. We are calling on the UK Government, heritage organisations and Christian denominations to work together to tackle the UK’s single biggest heritage challenge.Get involved

Church of the Week
Finchley , Greater London
Established in the 12th century, the oldest parts of the church can be found in the tower and the north wall, as well as the font which was dug up from the rectory garden in the 19th century. The walls date back to the 15th century whilst the font is much older and dates back to the 12th century. The church was a muse for one of Britain's most famous painters, as it was painted in watercolours by J M W Turner in 1793. We are delighted to be supporting St Mary's with their project to repair the slate roof, ensuring that this beautiful church can continue to serve its local community for many years to come.View Finchley St Mary at Finchley
