What we do

The Historic Chapels Trust

Rescues places of worship in England no longer used by their congregations. 

Restores the buildings and aims to hand them onto future generations in good condition, as the physical record of vital strands of our history.

Encourages suitable new uses to help make our chapels sustainable and lively.

Volunteers give generously of their time and energy at our buildings by caring for them, acting as local champions, acting as keyholders and guides, helping to raise money and by putting on events.

Supporters of our work give generously to help us keep our historic buildings in good shape and in use. We receive no direct government grant and have no endowment.  Please think of becoming an HCT Supporter.
