Churches Conservation Trust

Churches Conservation Trust


The Churches Conservation Trust is the national charity saving historic churches at risk in the UK.
They have saved over 350 buildings which attract almost 2 million visitors a year. Their unique collection of English churches includes irreplaceable examples of architecture, archaeology, and art from 1,000 years of history. They are kept open and in use, living once again at the heart of their communities.

They operate the third largest heritage estate in charitable ownership in the UK. All of the churches in our collection are listed, mostly grade I and II, and some are listed ancient monuments. Their churches remain consecrated and can be used for occasional worship.




All of their churches are listed, mostly grade I, and some are Scheduled ancient monuments. Their collection is the third largest collection of heritage buildings in the country and they are worthy of conservation for its national historic, architectural, and cultural significance. They carry out an extensive conservation programme of repair and maintenance of these special places.


Their Regeneration Team delivers major ‘new use’ projects for historic places of worship. They are an award-winning team with experience across community regeneration, planning and social enterprise, historic conservation, site interpretation, and project management.
