Sponsored Ride & Stride

The next Sponsored Bike Ride/Walk takes place on Saturday 9th September 2017. This annual event is an excellent way of raising funds for your own church as well as the Trust, as 50% of the money that you raise is returned to the church of your choice. In addition, there is the opportunity to visit and admire some of the wonderful Christian buildings in the County.

People of any age can take part as you can choose your own route, according to how many churches you wish to visit on the day. Most of the churches in the County will be open from 10.00 - 18.00, although there some that have to close earlier. 

A list of churches that will be open to visitors for the 2017 event is available to download - list of open churches.

Full details and Sponsorship forms are available from your Parish Organiser, whose contact details will be displayed on posters locally before the event.

Sponsorship forms may also be obtained from the Area Organisers, Richard and Val Hartley. To request one please email  richardvalhartley@btinternet.com .
