Churches Conservation Trust

The Churches Conservation Trust is the national charity protecting historic churches at risk.

We’ve saved over 340 beautiful buildings which attract nearly 2 million visitors a year. With our help and with your support they are kept open and in use – living once again at the heart of their communities.

Our estate is the largest single collection of historic churches in the country, ranging from untouched Medieval gems in idyllic rural settings, to the ornately impressive Victorian church in a busy town centre, as well as a small number of inner urban churches with serious repair problems, which may need a new use to survive. CCT's churches are of international importance and interest.
