This Trust was established in 1991 to raise and manage funds to help the restoration and repair of churches and chapels in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, and part of Barnet.
Our income comes from members’ subscriptions, donations, fundraising and our 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.
We also distribute church grants from the Wixamtree Trust in Bedfordshire.
