Published: Friday, March 9, 2018


The National Churches Trust’s Building Resilience Conference in London on Wednesday 27 June 2018 is a major event for anyone who loves, looks after or supports church buildings.

Join us if you are part of a team looking after a local church, chapel or meeting house or if you work or volunteer for an organisation supporting or promoting faith heritage, community outreach and engagement with churches.

Bill Bryson, writer, broadcaster and Vice-President of the National Churches Trust, will welcome you and other special guests at the Building Resilience Conference.

Participants include award winning broadcaster, Dr Jonathan Foyle; John Goodall, the Architectural Editor of Country Life; and Luke March, Chairman of the National Churches Trust (full Programme tbc).

Find out about and take away tools and resources accessing exciting new developments in funding, tourism and support for daily building care.

The event is taking place at the Emmanuel Centre, a listed place of worship centrally located in Westminster, from 9am – 4.30pm.
