very year we run a range of training sessions and courses delivered online or in person. Our sessions cover a wide range of topics, from maintenance to tourism and from grants to marketing.
We offer some great training sessions. We also work with partners who offer training, advice and support. Here we will try and list as many as we can that have online sessions and videos.
Questions about the Explore Churches section of our website?
We are trying to increase the number of visitors to churches (and the income from visitors for churches) and evidence shows that having information in one place benefits both visitors and churches. We would love to work with you and your organisation to encourage the churches you work with to be a part of our work.
Our themed lists are a unique way of promoting churches. They reach out to visitors based on what they are passionate about. That might be sculpture, cream teas, family history, art, walking, history, wildlife or climbing to name a few.
Our trails include walks, cycle rides and scenic drives. They could be long or short in duration. They could be nationally recognised or created locally. Churches could be the main focus or simply visit them as part of the trail.
If you have an idea or know of a trail we should include, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Experiences are exciting and immersive activities that make a great day out. They include exploring fascinating places and hands on activities that make for really memorable visits. We are inviting churches and tourism businesses across the UK to create their own Experiences which we will market to visitors, group travel and the tourism industry.
