Our impact

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.

Working together with churches in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, we help to keep these historic buildings thriving today, and tomorrow.
