Taking part as a Church in 2021
There are 3 ways that your church can take part:
- Encourage Riders and Striders from the parish to 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.
- Welcome visitors from other churches by opening your church and providing refreshments.
- 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
Here are documents that you can download to help you as a Church Representative:
