Taking part as a Church 2018

Please read the following letter from the County Ride & Stride Coordinators and take a look at our Top Tips on page two - Welcome Letter

There are 3 ways that your church can take part:

  1. Riders and Striders from the parish can raise money through seeking sponsorship and participating on
      the day. All ages can take part by bicycle, on foot, in a wheelchair, on horseback or car. It can be a fun day
      out for a family or group or as an individual.
  2. Welcome visitors from other churches by opening your church and providing refreshments.
  3. Put up a welcome sign outside or in the porch for people to sign if you are unable to open your church.

The last two options enable your church to help Riders and Striders from other churches to raise money.

You should receive a Guidelines document from your Area Coordinator. If you have not received one you can download a copy Ride and Stride Guidelines.

The following document gives you the benefits and suggestions for organising Ride&Stride for your church: Benefits & Suggestions
