The Churches Conservation Trust is the national charity protecting historic churches at risk.  We have saved and care for over 340 historic churches all across England which are no longer used for regular worship. Standing at the heart of both rural and urban communities, our churches range in date from Early Medieval to High Victorian, reflecting 1000 years of local and national history. 

The CCT works in partnership with community groups, schools, charities, social enterprises, ‘Friends’ groups, businesses and cultural organisations to breathe new life into these historic buildings and to realise their value as living and vital assets for people and their communities.

Launched in 2012, the CCT’s National Learning Plan strives to engage schools with our churches, encouraging and facilitating access to these inspiring places of learning. Through their art, architecture, monuments and stories historic churches have endless potential to support learning across the curriculum. They also make marvellous venues for art exhibitions, concerts and performances.

Learning Programmes:
The CCT employs a team of regional Heritage Learning Officers to work directly with schools and education providers across the country to plan and develop programmes of access and learning that best suit the needs and objectives of each individual group.  

Our historic churches make excellent classrooms with endless potential for inspiring and supporting learning across the curriculum including Art, Design and Technology, English, Geography, History and STEM subjects.
