For people who love church buildings

After hundreds of years in existence, many of the UK’s most cherished historic churches and chapels find themselves threatened by their most dangerous enemies yet: leaking roofs, crumbling stonework and timbers under siege from death watch beetle. Specialist repairs are usually way beyond the means of the local communities they serve.

By leaving a gift in your will to the National Churches Trust (formerly the Historic Churches Preservation Trust) you can help us ensure that churches and chapels are repaired and remain at the heart of each local community. Three out of four of our grants to restore these precious buildings are possible thanks to bequests in wills. A generous gift of just 1% of your estate will help to guarantee that our nation’s rich heritage of churches and chapels survive for many generations to come.

For more information please contact Claire Walker, Chief Executive. Thank you.
