Would you like to support us? The simplest way is to become a Friend of the Cornish Historic Churches Trust; you will join a friendly community and be invited to our four special Friends events each year.

Friends Events

As part of your membership, you are invited to four unique Friends events each year. These events provide enjoyable opportunities to meet other members and to raise funds for the CHCT.

The Annual Lunch is held in May or June at one of Cornwall's historic houses.

The Annual Friends of Cornish Churches Visit is in mid-June where Friends can enjoy a visit to a selection of religious buildings, mainly Churches, but Chapels and meeting houses have previously been included. There is an informative talk at each and the afternoon concludes with tea.

The Annual Meeting for Friends of Cornish Churches is held in late June or July and takes place at an especially interesting church within the county and again is followed by a lecture and tea. In 2017, we started a timeline of charting the architectural development of Cornish Churches; each year we will cover a key architectural period, starting in 2017 with the Romanesque period. More information can be found in the Annual Meeting section below.

The Champagne Christmas Party which is usually held just before Christmas, alternately at Scorrier House, near Redruth, and Boconnoc, near Lostwithiel.
