There is a church at the heart of every community. And each one puts its faith in action. Our churches run food banks and night shelters, host exercise classes, organise farmers markets, and so much more.
Our churches belong to everyone.

Our churches are often the oldest building in a village or town.
Each stone marks the location where history happened and tells of a significant event in our nation’s story.
They are steeped in history. And their architecture will inspire you.
We estimate that 35 to 50 million people visit churches each year as tourists.
Few historic buildings are as easy to visit as a parish church. They are open and welcoming to all.
During the week, many churches are unlocked during daylight hours, and those that are not have details on display of where a key can be found. To ensure you can gain access we suggest you contact the church in advance.
