Host a tea party


Thank you for your interest in helping us to support the UK’s amazing churches and chapels by fundraising for the National Churches Trust.

You know just how important parish churches and chapels are.

Show your love for churches - host a National Churches Trust Tea Party. 

For their unique history and heritage, for the community support they provide and as places of reflection and worship.  

The past fifteen months have been extremely difficult for churches right across the UK. More churches are coming to us for help and financial support, yet our funds have also been reduced during the pandemic.

Now, you can help us by hosting your very own National Churches Trust Tea Party and raise much needed funds for our work. It's a bit like a Coffee Morning, but with Tea!



Your support will mean that we can say “yes” to more churches in need. 

All you need is some tea, some cakes and of course some people who are happy to help by making a small donation.  You can hold your tea party on a date to suit you in your church, churchyard, in your home, garden or even online on Zoom. 

Our National Churches Trust Tea Party pack contains everything you need to hold a great event that everyone will enjoy.  To get your free pack or to find out more contact or call Alison Pollard on 020 7222 0605.


 "Wouldn’t it be dreadful to live in a country where they don’t have tea?” Noel Coward 



Claire Walker, our Chief Executive says:

"In 2020 we helped over 260 churches and chapels with funding but we could have helped many, many more if we had the money to meet the demand."

"By hosting a National Churches Trust Tea Party you will allow us to help more churches and chapels in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and keep them at the heart of local communities."

"Thank you so much for your support and I hope you have a great time at your Tea Party. Don't forget to send us some photographs!"

Thank you very much.  

 Other ways you can help

If you can’t host a National Churches Trust Tea Party right now, there may be other ways you can help. You could organise a collection at your church, hold a sponsored walk or talk or devise your very own  fundraising event?

No event is too big or too small, and you can be sure that the money you raise will go to support the UK’s churches so they can stay open and be there for local people, now and in the future.

If you want to help us, we would be delighted to hear from you. Just email us at or call Alison Pollard on  020 7222 0605.
