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 September each year against the criteria outlined in the Grant Application Form.
Ride your bike or walk to raise funds for Surrey’s churches: RIDE & STRIDE on Saturday 10 September 2022
We are looking for volunteers and potential trustees to join the Trust.

Annual talk: Rediscovering Pevsner: a look at new architectural discoveries in Surrey’s churches in the updated 2022 Surrey Pevsner Architectural Guide – with series editor Charles O’Brien
Charles O’Brien is series editor of the world famous Pevsner Architectural Guides at Yale University Press. He will talk about Surrey’s church architecture, as documented by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner and Ian Nairn in the original volume for the county, published in 1962. This is the first revision of the guide in fifty years, and Charles will review the scholarship of Surrey’s Churches since then, and changing opinions on the merits of recent changes.
