Churches Conservation Trust

The Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) is the national charity protecting historic churches at risk.

The CCT cares for over 340 historic buildings which attract almost 2 million visitors a year. Their collection includes some irreplaceable examples of English parish church architecture, archaeology and art from 1,000 years of history.

The CCT was established in 1969 as 'The Redundant Churches Fund', a unique partnership between Church, State and the Charity sector. The charity receives its churches in the form of 'vestings' from the Church Commissioners and all remain consecrated and can be used for occasional worship.  The Trust runs a wide range of conservation, tourism, volunteering and educational projects and works with local communities to bring their buildings back to life.

Chairman of the Trust is Loyd Grossman OBE FSA who was appointed in 2007. Crispin Truman is Chief Executive.
