Surrey Churches Preservation Trust
(registered Charity 1063656)
About the Trust
TheTrust (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 income is distributed via grants to Surrey churches for repairs. Applications are considered at the Trust meetings in February and August each year against the criteria outlined in the Grant Application Form.

The Annual Bike Ride and Stride
Trusts take part in the Annual Bike Ride throughout England and Wales
on the second Saturday of September, with the twin aims of raising
money and of having a fun day out.
The County Bike Ride Organiser provides publicity and posters, sponsorship forms and safety aids, with detailed instructions for church organisers and participants. Area Organisers help and co-ordinate the churches within specified parts of the County.
Half of each participant’s sponsorship money goes to the church of their choice; the other half goes to The Surrey Churches Preservation Trust which, in turn, distributes funds to churches applying for grants.
We welcome your ideas and help. If you are able to support the Trust in any way please contact us today. For details of other County trusts please click www.rideandstrideuk.org
