Saving The Past For The Future

bedfordshire_hertfordshire_historic+churches_trustAs a member of the Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire Historic Churches Trust, St Peter’s knows first-hand exactly how vital the work of this organisation is in assisting those who care for our churches in this area.

The tireless fundraising work carried out by the Trust and its supporters, allow them to give financial aid to parishes seeking to restore, maintain, preserve, repair or reconstruct the fabric of their places of worship – money that can frequently make the difference between the loss of the architecture, beauty and history of buildings that may be hundreds of years old, and their preservation for the continuing use of current and future generations.

Each year, the Trust organises a sponsored ‘Bike ‘n Hike’ around Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, with many churches and chapels opening their doors to welcome participants and offer much needed refreshment along the route. It’s a wonderful day and raises a six figure sum via sponsorship and Gift Aid giving.
