The Trust is supported entirely by voluntary subscriptions, donations and legacies, and the more money it receives, the more help it can give.

Individual membership – Individuals are encouraged to subscribe, preferably by covenant, which increases the value of the gift and allows the Trust to budget ahead. Current suggested rates are £30 per annum individual, £45 per annum for two persons at the same address and £500 for life membership.

Ride + Stride – The annual sponsored cycle, run or walk is the Trust’s main source of income. It is held on the second Saturday during September in conjunction with similar events organised by other County Trusts across the country.  This year it will be on Saturday September 9th – help your church and have a good time! The people who take part donate half of the money they make from sponsorship to the church of their choice and half to the Trust.  It is the biggest single ecumenical event in England.

Other Events and Activities – From time to time other events are organised by the Trust and any help with fund raising is always welcome.

Christmas Cards – Our Christmas cards are all images of Berkshire churches. They are sold by mail order and in the Cards for Good Causes shops in Reading and Newbury. If you are not on our mailing list please contact Erica Harman at 01635 253786 or

Annual Meeting – The Annual General Meeting is combined with a tour of churches which the Trust has helped, culminating in tea and evensong.

Donations – We will be delighted to receive your donation.  Please download the donation form and return it to us.
