Welcome

This Trust was established in 1991 to raise and manage funds to help the restoration and repair of churches and chapels in the counties of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire and also part of Barnet.

Our income comes from members’ subscriptions and from an annual "Bike 'n Hike" event on the second Saturday of September when hundreds of churches in both counties are open for visiting by sponsored riders and walkers. If you would like to take part, you can find sponsor forms and full details on the Bike 'n Hike event website.

The Trust also acts as a distributive agent for church grants made by the Wixamtree Trust in Bedfordshire. Read on for information on how to support the Trust or how to apply for a grant.
