Support Us

The work that the SRCT carries out, caring for historically and architecturally important churches and ensuring that they are used and enjoyed by everyone, requires a great deal of help. The help we rely on to look after these wonderful historic buildings is not just financial. We also need practical help from people who are willing to give their time and their skills as volunteers. Please support us in whatever way you can.

Join a Friends Group

We rely on volunteers to help with the day-to-day running of churches. This can mean organising events and open days, or jobs such as key holding, guiding, cleaning or flower arranging. People with skills of all sorts are always welcome but interest and enthusiasm are every bit as important. Some Friends may not be able to provide practical help but can still contribute through attending events or telling others about what’s happening at a church.

Please contact us to find out more about becoming a Friend.

Donate to the SRCT

The SRCT is a charity and does not receive statutory funding. Funding for our work comes from grant applications, donations, and legacies. As well as raising money to care for the churches we own, we also have to raise money to fund the running of the organisation. Please consider making a donation to support the work of the SRCT and help us to continue the important work we do.

To find out more about making a donation to the SRCT please contact us.

Donate to a church or a project

All the funding for the upkeep, repair and restoration of our churches comes from grants and donations, and the financial support of people who care about these special buildings is incredibly important to us. The generosity of individuals, charitable trusts and other grant making bodies allows us to keep our churches open, well looked after and useful. Please consider making a donation to support a specific church or project.

Please contact us to find out more about donating to a church or project of your choice.

Leave a legacy

Remembering the SRCT or a specific church in your Will is a way of ensuring a lasting legacy, and we are happy to discuss your particular wishes.
