Suffolk Historic Churches Trust
The Suffolk Historic Churches Trust was founded in 1973 as a result of the growing awareness of the threat to these ancient and historic buildings. A combination of rising repair costs, dwindling congregations and hopelessly inadequate parish or community resources meant that many of the churches were facing redundancy and closure.
Since then the Trust has raised and distributed over three million pounds to help with the repair and maintenance of these churches.
It organises a very full programmes of events including conducted tours of Suffolk churches and an Annual Sponsored Bike Ride to Suffolk Churches which is its main fund raising event.
