Ride and Stride - Saturday 14 September

 The Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust is holding its annual Sponsored Bike Ride/Walk on Saturday 14th September 2019. This annual event not only provides funds for the maintenance of the many historic churches in Northamptonshire but 50% of the money that is raised is returned directly to help the local church which you nominate. In addition, there is the opportunity to visit and admire some of the wonderful Christian buildings in the County. People of any age can take part as you can choose your own route, according to how many churches you wish to visit on the day. We also need people to sit in the churches during the day, please consider volunteering to greet visitors for an hour or two.

Most of the churches in the County will be open from 10.00 - 18.00, although there some that have to close earlier.

All of the churches in our benefice will be open

St Mary's Church, Great Houghton will also be hosting an Art Exhibition, and St Laurence Church at Brafield -on-the-Green will be setting up for Harvest Festival.
