Become a Friend of the National Churches Trust

An annual Friends subscription of just £30 can help us to ensure that the UK's churches and chapels remain in good repair and can carry on being Houses of Good, providing vital support to local people.

As a Friend, you'll be the first to know about our work supporting the UK's churches, chapels and meeting houses.

We love church buildings, so if you do too, please join us today!

Individual membership

For as little as £30 a year, join our growing family of Friends and help us to secure the future of our nation's beautiful churches, chapels and meeting houses, to enable them to continue to do such good work in their communities.

Joint membership

For just £60 a year, you and someone special can join our growing community of Friends. Your support will not only help us save 1,000 years of history – it will also help churches continue to be community centres for their cities, towns and villages.

Lifetime membership

Lifetime membership allows you to become one of our closest supporters and enjoy a deepened involvement in our work. Thanks to your membership we'll be able to help more churches and chapels remain open for future generations to enjoy.

Gift membership

For just £30, give someone special a gift that will last the whole year. They will also receive a copy of 'English Parish Churches and Chapels', a delightful and inspiring book of photographs.
