Supported by Sir Michael Palin, our national debate shows that church buildings have a vital role to play now and in the future.
Every year we help hundreds of churches, chapels and meeting houses in to stay open, helping to save precious heritage and keeping churches at the beating heart of local communities.
Churches are impressive, exciting and surprising places.
We believe they should be loved and supported.
