Call for churches to sign up for Yorkshire Churches Day

Tom Ramsden, chairman of the YHCT said: ‘The Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust is launching this initiative in the hope that Yorkshire Churches Day will become a day of general celebration, when all Yorkshire’s Churches, Cathedrals, Chapels and Meeting Houses will be open to all and visited by anyone keen to explore their heritage and enjoy that sense of beauty and peace present in these buildings.

“Please use this day each year to pop in to your local church, sit there quietly for a minute or two and feel the magic of the place. They were created with love and care and they will be kept alive for future generations with your support.’

The YHCT are encouraging all places of worship to consider opening up on September 10, and those who are curious about history and heritage or those who have never stepped foot inside church before to get exploring.
