Churches have a sense of timelessness and permanency. In the churches of Surrey, the story of countless generations is preserved within their walls — from medieval brass memorials and wall paintings, to Victorian stained glass and 21st century textiles.
Our churches can never be replaced and constant renovation is required to preserve them. Local communities often find difficulty in raising enough funds for the specialised work required which becomes ever more expensive.
The Surrey Churches Preservation Trust gives grants to churches and chapels asking for help with maintenance of both the buildings and the fixtures and fittings.
