Aims and Objectives

To assist in the preservation and repair of churches and chapels, in order to render them ` wind and watertight`, of all Christian denominations within the area of benefit , which is to say “within the historical boundaries of Lincolnshire” , providing such buildings are at least 100 years old . We have also extended our brief to consider giving grant aid towards the sensitive introduction of new toilet and servery facilities into such churches, provided the fabric of the building is already in good order, as we feel that the introduction of such facilities can greatly increase the value and use of the building to the local community and thus help to ensure its continued maintenance in the future.  We do not assist with repairs to redundant churches.

How You Can Help

As a registered charity (No. 509021) the Lincolnshire Churches Trust depends upon voluntary support and we raise money by:

  • the Sponsored ‘Ride and Stride’ which is held across the County on the second Saturday in September;
  • Garden Openings – held mainly on Sunday afternoons between April and August;
  • Lectures on topical subjects which are held in Spring or Autumn each year.
  • purchasing Christmas Cards through “Cards for Good Causes” shops or direct from the Trust;
  • becoming a subscriber or making a donation;
  • providing a Legacy through your will.
  • taking part in or contributing to any of these activities you are making a positive statement by helping to preserve some of Lincolnshire`s finest and oldest churches that are now requiring urgent repair and restoration.
