Hampshire and the Islands Historic Churches Trust

This is a non-denominational charity which raises funds towards the upkeep of some 900 historic church buildings dating from the 8th to the 20th century. Since 1988, HIHCT has provided grants and loans in excess of 540,000 to help repair, restore and maintain churches, their contents and churchyards. More than 300 churches, chapels and meeting houses in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight have benefited.
Whether you wish to apply for a grant, take part in Ride and Stride, or just find out more about the wonderful church buildings in the region, we hope this site will help you. Please visit our Picture Gallery to view some of the churches we have helped..
