Welcome to GHCT’s 2017 newsletter, with updates on all you helped us achieve in 2016 and our plans for the year ahead.
We’re celebrating 35 years helping churches around the county. During that time we’ve awarded more than £2.27million in grants to churches, chapels and meeting houses to help congregations meet the costs of repairs, maintenance and essential improvements.
Ride + Stride is our biggest fundraiser each year, and hundreds of dedicated participants & supporters helped us reach our highest total yet in 2016. County Organiser Glenn Duff’s report has more details.
We were delighted to award £130,000 in grants last year to 37 deserving churches – read on for some highlighted cases.
Our AGM takes place on June 7 at Dursley Methodist Church, followed by the Ride + Stride Social event in St James, Dursley from 6.30pm. Free parking is available in Sainsbury’s and we look forward to seeing many of you there.
We are planning an exciting event for our friends and supporters and further details will be sent out in due course.
Until then, thank you again for your support and if you’d like to get in touch please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nick Talbot-Rice, GHCT Chairman
