Get your friends together and help raise money for churches across the Diocese of Norwich by signing up for this year’s Norfolk Churches Trust Bike Ride.
“What a wonderful way to enjoy a day out around our beautiful county and play your part in the repair and preservation our historic church buildings for future generations.”
The Rt Revd Alan Winton, Bishop of Thetford has endorsed the Norfolk Churches Trust Bike Ride 2022, along with his colleagues, the Rt Revd Dr Jane Steen, Bishop of Lynn and the Rt Revd Graham Usher, Bishop of Norwich.
If you don’t have a bike, there are other ways to take part. Bishop Jane said;
“We have even had some folk do part of their church trail via swimming along the coast. Whether you choose to hike, bike or drive, do add your support!”
You could join in as a family day out with a picnic and enjoy visiting churches near you. Or if you’re competitive, there is The Prince of Wales certificate for the individual who raises the most money and the Wall of Fame for the most churches visited. Alongside this, there is a photography competition. Bishop Graham said;
“The Norfolk Churches Trust Bike Ride is an invaluable opportunity to fundraise for and support our churches – sacred and special places – treasure troves of memory for generations in all communities across the county. It’s fun too! Why not see how many you can get round in a day?”
Any money you raise as an individual or group is split between the church of your choice and the Norfolk Churches Trust. In 2021, a total of 307 places of worship received grants.
The event takes place on Saturday 10th September and there’s still plenty of time to sign up here: Bike Ride & Walk – The Norfolk Churches Trust
