Ride+Stride for churches - 11 September 2021

 

Visit unique historic buildings, see beautiful countryside, get some exercise and have fun with the family! 

Ride+Stride for churches is a sponsored bike ride or walk between churches, exploring and enjoying the countryside from Cornwall to Northumberland. It takes place every year on the second Saturday in September. The money raised helps to repair churches, chapels and meeting houses throughout England.

Supported by The National Churches Trust and run by county churches Trusts nationwide, Ride+Stride for Churches opens the doors to some of England's amazing church buildings. In 2020, Ride+Stride raised over £1.2 million for the restoration and preservation of the UK’s historic churches, chapels and meeting houses.

In 2021 Ride+Stride for Churches will take place on 11 September.

We are delighted that churches on the Isle of Man are taking part in their first ever Ride+Stride event. Details of participating churches can be found on the Diocese of Sordor and Man website.
