Welcome to Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust.
The Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust was founded in 1955 with the object of raising funds to make grants to churches in Northamptonshire of all denominations for their ''preservation, repair and maintenance, improvement, upkeep, beautification and reconstruction".
It is a charity in its own right, but is affiliated to the National Churches Trust. Its funds are raised by donations, covenants, membership fees and from the proceeds of the annual sponsored "Ride & Stride", which takes place on the second Saturday in September each year.
Grants are made to churches and chapels during the course of the year but are marked by a Celebration Evening during July. This is invariably a most congenial evening when members of the Trust have the opportunity of meeting representatives from the churches to which grants have been made.
These representatives also have the opportunity of exchanging experiences which provides a source of encouragement in the challenging task of fund raising.
