Support for local churches trusts



Churches Trusts Forum Conference


Welcome to our support pages for local churches trusts.

Around the UK, there is an active network of local trusts that help churches. Many give essential grant funding and provide helpful advice. They also organise the annual Ride+Stride for Churches event which raises funds for many thousands of churches.

The National Churches Trust works with representatives of the local churches trusts through the Churches Trusts Forum. The Forum has an Annual Conference and a newsletter with the latest news about the work of local trusts.

How we help

The National Churches Trust's aim is to to help local churches trusts continue to flourish. We help them by providing funding for church repair and modernisation projects through our Partnership Grants Programme which we currently run in 26 areas of the UK.

Our national partnerships with JustGiving, the Directory of Social Change and others make it easier for local churches trusts and individual churches to fundraise. We also help local volunteers look after church buildings with our programme of workshops and events.

Ride+Stride for Churches

Last but not least, we work closely with local churches trusts on developing the annual Ride+Stride for churches event. Working with the national Ride+Stride for Churches committee, we provide a range of branding and marketing solutions and run a national website to help more people find out about the event.

If you would like to find out about the local churches trust near you or would like to volunteer to help them please visit our directory to find out how to contact them.
