The map shows our region of the country, divided into our 8 districts with map pins representing Ride+Stride information about our churches. Please let us know whether your church will be open on the event day.
Please have a look at the map and if your church has a yellow map pin, we would like to hear from you! We would like to know (a) the hours between 10am and 4pm that the church is open to visitors (b) whether anyone will be there to welcome any visitors and if so at what times (c) whether any light refreshments will be available for visitors. Items (b) and (c) are optional but are appreciated.
Opening your church gives encouragment and opportunities to our riders and striders and it does no harm to our statistics which we have to present to the National Churches Trust on the number of open churches on the day.
To update the status of your church, please contact the County Organiser by phone or email with the answers to the 3 questions or if you are a Local Organiser, you can complete Question 8 as described in your Local Organiser’s Handbook (but do phone or email if you prefer).
We provide thousands of pounds in grants every year to maintain churches throughout Gloucestershire, but we can only do that with your continued support. Please help us continue our vital work.
