600 Norfolk churches open doors to cyclists


Over the last 30 years over £2.5million has been raised through the annual sponsored bike ride and walk organised by the Norfolk Churches Trust, and many will be walking and cycling on Saturday September 13 in this year's event.

Supported by TV presenter Jake Humphrey, the day gives the people of Norfolk the opportunity to enjoy some of the finest historic churches in the country, appeals to anyone who likes a bit of exercise, and participants are able to raise money for their own local church and the trust, and with more than 600 churches open on the day this is a great opportunity to explore.

On the day there is the opportunity to take part in a number of competitions, including the 2014 photographic competition, activity sheets and crosswords; the top ten people who visit the most churches will be recorded on the wall of fame and the top fund raiser will receive a certificate signed by the Prince of Wales who is patron of the Norfolk Churches Trust. 

It is not too late to plan your walk or ride, full details, including sponsorship forms, posters, details of all the competitions and more are available on the trust website, you can even donate on-line. click here to access.

Do you appreciate our service and stories?

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.

Because we are part of a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid on your donations if you are a tax-payer.
