What We Do
Historic Chapels Trust rescues places of worship in England that are no longer in use by congregations. We aim to hand them onto future generations in good condition, as the physical record of vital strands of our history. Our buildings include include a range of nonconformist chapels and Catholic churches - but not Anglican churches as there is government scheme for this. We encourage new uses to help make our building sustainable. Contact us if you would like to hire one of our chapels for an event. To view all forthcoming events at our buildings click here.
