Shock Tactics!

Crumbling masonry, leaking roofs, lead stolen, rotten floorboards, bells no longer ringing, churches closed and covered in ivy…does this ring a bell? Look at this recent photo of All Saints Church, Neenton:

All Saints, Neenton

That’s why we Ride+ Stride!

We do it to raise money to help repair churches and chapels of architectural merit across the county and even a few just over the border into Wales.

Try it out and see for yourself!

We hope to have at least 250 churches and chapels open on Saturday 14th September. Shropshire has a wealth of churches and chapels so have a look at our website to see what sort of church you might visit, are you interested in gothic architecture, simple cell churches, stained glass windows, intricate carved woodwork?    www.shropshirehct.org.uk

Use the ‘Explore Churches’ website to help you discover a beautiful collection of fascinating places to visit. www.explorechurches.org.

Don’t forget to check the “Documents file” on the website to see if the churches and chapels you want to visit have refreshments; many do, a toilet; many don’t, a welcome; hopefully, interesting features; always!

Our SHCT website is updated with this information regularly.

Then…you need some sponsorship!

Download a sponsorship form from the Document section…the money you raise goes towards your church and the SHCT (50/50) which grant aids churches of all denominations and of architectural interests in need of repair.

If you don’t have a church it can all go to the Shropshire Historic Churches Trust to be distributed as grants.

Last year Shropshire raised £31,252.00….. a wonderful amount and achieved our target of £30,000 with ease!!!.

So join in and enjoy your day, on foot, on bike and even in your car. If you aren’t up to a hike fill your car with friends and explore lovely Shropshire.

Have fun!
