Grant information  Bike 'n Hike 

WELCOME

This Trust was established in 1991 to raise and manage funds to help the restoration and repair of churches and chapels in the counties of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire and also part of Barnet.

Our income comes from members’ subscriptions and from an annual “Bike ’n Hike” event in September, when hundreds of churches in both counties are open for visiting by sponsored riders and walkers. More details on our Bike ’n Hike page.

The Trust also acts as a distributive agent for church grants made by the Wixamtree Trust in Bedfordshire. Read on for information on how to support the Trust or to apply for a grant.

Membership 


We have distributed more than £3m since the Trust was established, helping congregations and local communities struggling to repair their local church, which could be anything up to a thousand years old. To make a donation click on the Just Giving logo.
