Event Ideas for 2014

We have developed a calendar of fun ideas and interesting events for the year ahead to help you organise and plan fundraising activities for CCT.  Our churches are the perfect backdrop for so many different types of events and through these national and many other local events we endeavour to keep each church at the very heart of its community.  We would love for individuals and local communities to come together and show their support by taking part in one of our events.  Of course, if you have your own fundraising event in mind please do get in touch as we would love to hear all about it!

In return we can offer support by providing free marketing materials and promotion on a featured events page.  We can provide you with advice from other volunteers on how to run successful events, tips and tricks on fundraising and advice on maximising your fundraising success as well as getting some media coverage.

Please see below some of our up and coming National events that you can get involved with.
