This page provides a map that shows the latest information we have on the churches that we believe will be part of Ride+Stride this year. The map changes frequently so please check often.

The information on the map comes from our Local Organisers. If you are the Local Organiser for a church on the map (or yours is missing) please update the County Organiser as soon as possible since other people may be relying on the information. If your church has a yellow map pin then your County Organiser is waiting for you to complete Question 6 of the Local Organiser’s Questionnaire. Please get in touch if you have no idea what that means!

If any of this information proves incorrect, please accept our apologies but do let us know about the problem when you discover it so we can try to fix the system and prevent others having issues too. If you are really relying on any information on this page, contact your County Organiser (if you do not know the Local Organiser) and he will try to double check details for you. We suggest that you request this in good time and that you check this website on the day before you set off. Thanks.


Our Northernmost church is Ebrington, St Eadburgha.
Our Easternmost church is Broadwell, St Peter & St Paul.
Our Southernmost church is Bitton, St Mary.
Our Westernmost church is Redbrook, St Saviour.


We currently have 235 active churches and 306 new (or inactive) churches that we are in the process of finding contacts for. There are 176 churches declared as open on the day and 95 of them will be providing a welcome party for some of the time so please try to include them in your route! The unsung heroes/heroines of the welcome parties give their time to greet and look after you, we know it is sad for them if no-one turns up on the day to say hello! These figures were last updated on 8 September 2016 at 06:36.

If you have a route planned, please contact the County Organiser to let him know what it is!

Do have a look at our event map and if you see that a church is missing, we would love to know about it. Please contact the County Organiser to let him know!


We have organised the churches with coloured icons based on whether they have declared themselves to be open to visitors or not.
Green map pins have declared themselves open at least some of the time;
Yellow map pins have not declared yet or are not taking part in the event at this time.
Red map pins have declared themselves not open but you can still visit and sign the welcome notice (if present) and your own sponsorship form;

Your feedback on this would be appreciated.

If you use a sat nav to help you get around on the day, you will be interested in our Points Of Interest (POI) file which will allow you to plan your own route involving any of the 545+ churches in our database. Have a look – enjoy!
