Devon Historic Churches

Welcome to The Devon Historic Churches Trust

Support Devon’s Heritage

The Devon Historic Churches Trust is dedicated to funding repairs and maintenance to places of Christian worship in the Diocese of Exeter and throughout Devon.

Funding for our grants comes from the generosity of our supporters: either by donations, membership subscriptions, fundraising activities or legacies.

Our main fundraising event is Devon Historic Churches Day incorporating the national Ride+Stride

On this day all churches in Devon should be open, welcoming visitors and doing something to raise funds for the Devon Historic Churches Trust.
