The churches and chapels of Derbyshire are visual and historical landmarks of their own towns or villages as well as being places of worship for their communities and for the celebration of significant moments in people’s lives.  Many of them, too, are more than 500 years old and provide the most obvious and generally accessible examples of our architectural heritage.  As such there is an obligation upon all of us to prevent them suffering irreversible decay.  Each year the congregations of many of the County’s Anglican, Roman Catholic and Non-Conformist Churches are faced with raising money to carry out necessary and sometimes emergency repairs to the fabric of their church.  In many counties, therefore, Church Preservation Trusts have been formed with the principal object of raising funds, not to supplant but to offer that first contribution to an appeal which so often encourages others.

 In 1993 The Derbyshire Churches & Chapels Preservation Trust was launched with His Grace The 11th Duke of Devonshire as President and the Bishops of Derby and Nottingham, and the Nottingham & Derby Methodist Chair as Patrons. His Grace the 12th Duke of Devonshire is now President. The principal object of the Trust is to raise funds to be used primarily as ‘pump primers’, particularly for those buildings or repairs which would not ordinarily attract other grant aid.

The Bike Ride & Walk is a National Event organised on a county basis. It was started by the Suffolk trust in 1982 and has since grown rapidly with 31 counties taking part in the 2005 event. Derbyshire started the event in 1992 and is usually supported by over 160 churches, raising approximately £18,000. Half of the sponsorship money goes directly to the participant's nominated church and the remainder to the DCCPT.

Sponsorship forms and Information will be available from your church representative or from the county organiser (Download Sponsorship Form). Participants may cross county boundaries and get their sponsorship forms signed in the same way - lists will be available of Churches and Chapels open in neighbouring counties. Please apply in good time.
