Ride+Stride for churches 2021
Saturday 11 September

Stretch your legs and relax your mind, visit unique historic buildings, see beautiful countryside, get some exercise and have fun with family and friends!

Ride+Stride for churches is a sponsored bike ride or walk between churches, exploring and enjoying town and countryside in Surrey. Run by the Surrey Churches Preservation Trust, it takes place annually and the money raised helps to repair churches, chapels and meeting houses throughout the county.

This year with churches closed for so long and many having lost income thanks to the pandemic, it is more important than ever to help them conserve their buildings. Half of the money you raise goes to your nominated church, half for grants to help maintain Surrey’s churches.

Book the date now!

Thank you!


The Surrey Churches Preservation Trust is a registered UK charity run entirely – yes 100% – by unpaid volunteers

There are over 400 churches of all Christian denominations across the county of Surrey and the Surrey Churches Preservation Trust has raised and granted over £500,000 in church repair and conservation grants to a number of them in just over 20 years
