Summer Events at HCT Chapels

From madrigals to soul, world music to live poetry, lectures to exhibitions.  See the events page here for details of theses events.


Storm-hit Historic Chapels passed over

Fierce winds and torrential rain from Boxing Day throughout January 2016 have caused flooding to many houses in Weardale, Co Durham and ripped many  slates off HCT's Westgate Chapel, letting in rain. Our consultants recommend complete replacement as the only solution.  HCT applied to the Church Roof Fund, set up by the government to help with roof repairs, for help with this £70,000 project but was refused support, so we are still seeking the money to deal with the situation at Westgate. Not one nonconformist church or chapel was among those places of worship supported by the Church Roof Fund in the North East region.


Weddings at HCT Buildings

Marriages are available at several of our chapels:  Biddlestone, Longworth, Penrose, St George's, Todmorden, Wallasey and Walpole. Religious marriages for same-sex couples are available at Todmorden. For details e-mail transition@hct.org.uk
