2018 Bike ’n Hike - Saturday 8 September

Churches of all denominations will be open on 8 September 2018 ready to receive walkers and cyclists, offering a rare opportunity to visit as well as a fun day out for those taking part.  


 It is fun joining in, but there is a serious side to it too, for the Trust relies on sponsorship money raised by participants, to hand out in the form of grants to churches and chapels in need of a helping hand with expensive maintenance or serious repair.


  Maintenance or repair is a subject many church people take for granted, like the roads or the street lighting "something will be done about it when necessary", is an unspoken assumption. Well, it won't, unless the church gets its act together and tackles the problem. Unfortunately, for many small congregations, the prospect of raising thousands of pounds seems daunting and many repair projects are in danger of failing before they have started. This is where the Trust helps.

  

So, please support the  Bike 'n Hike. And remember,  50% of money raised can come back to your church, so there's another incentive!

The Trust depends on the Bike ‘n Hike as its principal source of income. It provides much of the money the Trust is able to pass on in the form of grants to repair, restore or maintain the fabric of churches and chapels  in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

We need as much support as we can muster each year. But raising money this way is a lot of fun too.
