    The LeicesterShire Historic Churches Trust needs to raise thousands of pounds every year to support our ongoing work helping the churches and chapels of Leicester and Leicestershire

  • Closure of churches and chapels due to corona virus has meant projects postponed and fundraising events cancelled. Your donation will allow us to give help where it is most needed. Our funding helps to keep church buildings watertight, safe and able to re-open their doors when we can all gather together once more.

    Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.

    We rely on your donations...

    We provide financial help for repairs and improvements to churches and chapels of all denominations throughout Leicester and Leicestershire to help keep them fit for their purpose – for Christian worship, and as a community resource. We could not make grants without the help of our supporters.

    Since the LeicesterShire Historic Churches Trust was founded in 1964 more than £1,150,000 has been given in grants to repair and improve our historic churches and chapels. If you, like us, want to help care for Leicestershire's churches and improve them for your community, please make a donation or support us through a legacy.

    How we are helping Leicestershire's churches & chapels


    Churches and Chapels helped in 2020 with the support of our grants.


    Grants we awarded to churches and chapels in 2020 for repairs, improvements and new facilities.


    People took part in Ride+Stride in 2020, helping to raise 37,900 (an amazing amount considering the difficult pandemic circumstances, particularly in Leicester)
