The Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust
Over the centuries, churches have defined landscapes, brought together communities and demonstrated beautiful craftsmanship. These magnificent buildings will always need preservation and maintenance so that they can remain standing for centuries to come.
The Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust provides funds for churches, chapels and meeting houses of all Christian denomination within the county of Yorkshire. Funding ranges from relatively small schemes such as repairs to monuments, to much larger ones including large scale repointing of stonework, complete roofing repairs and replacements and other more complex conservation works.
With the help of Friends of the trust and the general public through fundraising activities, donations and sponsor days, the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust is currently able to award grants amounting to approximately £100,000 a year to churches in need.
Yorkshire is home to many of the most important churches in the United Kingdom: They dominate the landscape, they are vital to the life of many communities and they are full of the treasures of our heritage. By giving your support to the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust you are helping to maintain and develop these much loved places of worship and to secure their future for generations to come.”Tom Ramsden, Chairman.
