The Trust (which is an all volunteer organisation) was set up in 1997 to stimulate interest in Surrey churches (of all Christian denominations) and to make grants for their repair and conservation.

The main source of income is the annual sponsored Ride & Stride. Gifts from individuals (including GiftAid and legacies), corporate bodies, and other charitable trusts are also welcome.

The income is distributed via grants to Surrey churches for repairs. Applications are considered at the Trust meetings in April and October each year against the criteria outlined in the Grant Application Form.

Come and find out what our members receive.

You can make a donation in person or on line.

The Trustees meet at the end of March and September every year to consider grant applications.

Raise money for church restoration and repair.

Start preparing now for the Surrey RIDE & STRIDE for churches event!


Have a great day out, discover Surrey’s heritage and make a real difference in these challenging times.
The Surrey Churches Preservation Trust is run 100% by volunteers and uses all money raised from Ride & Stride to help repair and conserve Surrey’s Christian churches: half of the money you raise goes to your chosen church and the rest is distributed to other places of worship across Surrey via conservation grants.
