Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust

The Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust was founded in 1955 with the object of raising funds to make grants to churches in Northamptonshire of all denominations for their "preservation, repair and maintenance, improvement, upkeep, beautification and reconstruction".


Grants are made to churches and chapels during the course of the year but are marked by a Celebration Evening during July. This is invariably a most congenial evening when members of the Trust have the opportunity of meeting representatives from the churches to which grants have been made. These representatives also have the opportunity of exchanging experiences which provides a source of encouragement in the challenging task of fund raising.
