We would like to say thank you to all our supporters.
Dr Simon Thurley CBE,
"Never has there been more need for new and original church guides. Hopefully this imaginative scheme for volunteer writers will breathe new life into what has become a mummified format."
Sir Roy Strong, former director of the Victoria and Albert Museum and author of A Little History of the English Country Church
"Wonderful... free help, advice and words for churches writing a guide to their buildings!"
"It's hugely important to provide church visitors with authoritative, high quality information. Churchguides.co.uk is a terrific resource which can bring together budding writers looking for an interesting subject with historic churches in need of a good guide. We at the Churches Conservation Trust welcome this initiative and look forward to working with Churchguides.co.uk to support communities who want to make the most of their beautiful and fascinating parish churches."
Loyd Grossman OBE, FSA, Chairman, The Churches Conservation Trust
"Getting the history of little-known churches in England and Wales into print encourages local support and safeguards their upkeep. This scheme will increase the information available for visitors and parishioners, helping to ensure the future of parish churches across the country."
Sir Simon Jenkins, Chairman of the National Trust and author of England's Thousand Best Churches
"People who visit churches come in all shapes and sizes and most often need help to understand and listen to the building as well as navigating and finding their way around. The church guidebook can be dated, dull and meaningless to people who have limited experience of 'church'! This site has plenty of encouraging and useful tips for congregations as well as invaluable support from those who really know what they're talking about."
