Home Churches Ride + Stride Grants Friends News Cards Music Events About Us


WELCOME to the website of the Dorset Historic Churches Trust. We are a registered charity which, in partnership with the National Churches Trust, is dedicated to the preservation of Christian churches and chapels of all denominations in the administrative County of Dorset, which are open for public worship. Our Annual Report and Accounts for the year 2019 has been added to the last 3 years' reports on the About Us page under the link Annual Report 2020. We hope that you will enjoy reading it.  

CORONAVIRUS update:   On 23 June, the Trustees decided after much careful thought and consultation, that we should go ahead with Ride +Stride in a modified form on Saturday 12 September. Please click on our News page to read a full statement and also go to our Ride + Stride page, where details of the event will be posted once they have been worked up. Thank you for your interest and support.    

Please sponsor the Archdeacon of Dorset's haircut!

The Archdeacon of Dorset has invited you to sponsor his out-of-lockdown haircut. Ven Antony will be raising funds for the Salisbury Diocese's Link to Sudan and South Sudan and also for DHCT. He is a Vice President of the Trust and a keen rider in Ride + Stride, which we recently announced will be going ahead in Dorset this year. Sponsorship is already rolling in so please support him generously.  Go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Antony-MacRow-Wood.
