The Churches Conservation Trust

The Churches Conservation Trust is the national charity protecting historic churches at risk. We've saved over 345 special buildings which attract almost 2 million visitors a year. With our help and with your support they are kept open, in use and free to all living once again at the heart of their communities.

Our buildings are the largest single collection of historic churches in the country, ranging from the virtually untouched medieval in idyllic rural settings, to ornately impressive Victorian in busy town centres. It includes ten challenging inner urban churches, which will need new uses and significant funds to survive.
