Saving the heritage of our church buildings

St Mary’s Overton

Ride and Stride success 2021

11th September 2021 was a glorious day throughout the County and many Riders & Striders were out enjoying the churches and countryside. Nearly £62,000 was raised which will enable us to continue to fund the grants to our churches to maintain our community assets. We are very grateful to all who took part whether welcoming visitors to your church or being sponsored enjoying a day out with family or friends . Over 100 churches will benefit sharing the sponsorship money.

Please join us this year on 10th September 2022

Our Heritage

Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is blessed with over 900 fully functioning churches, chapels and meeting houses dating from the 7th to the 20th century, many of which have historic and architectural significance. These churches, which are often in beautiful settings contributing to the landscape, contain much local and national history, heritage and interest, but upkeep and new facilities are expensive.
