Our work

Whether we are conserving the past or regenerating buildings for the future, our work ensures that historic English churches are kept safe for future generations to enjoy.

In 2014 we completed a £4.3m project to transform a 19th-century church in Bolton into a state-of-the-art community facility.

How to help

As a charity we rely heavily on the support of volunteers and donations. Every year, we need to raise an additional £1.5million just to carry out essential repair work.

Find out how you can help by selecting one of the options below.


St James' Church, Cooling, KentWe welcome around two million visitors to our churches each year, but we can't do it without your help.

If each visitor donated just £2, this would enable us to keep our churches open, safe and watertight for everyone to enjoy.
