The Herefordshire Historic Churches Trust was formed sixty years ago to provide financial help with repairs, restoration and improvement to churches of all denominations in Herefordshire. We look to help churches help themselves and since the trust was formed many hundreds of thousands of pounds have been given in the way of grants to help churches with essential repairs.
The Trust is supported entirely by voluntary subscriptions, donations and legacies. The more money it receives, the more help it can give.
A message from our Joint President, the 105th bishop of Hereford, Richard Frith
In Herefordshire where around 150 of our church buildings are listed as Grade I or Grade II*, making them some of the most treasured buildings in the country, it is reassuring to know that HHCT is there to help parishes at times of financial need. It is also good to know that this grant funding will help with costs for the less glamorous works like drains and guttering as well as support the big projects like spires, towers and stained glass windows which are so much more attractive. HHCT’s financial base comes from donations, so I must remind churches that an annual donation, when the building is standing in good condition, is a good investment for when works need doing.
