The Friends Of Kent Churches
Who we are
Founded in 1949, we are dedicated to preserving Kent’s churches and helping maintain them in good condition. In the past ten years, through our fund raising Ride & Stride and generous legacies and donations, Kent’s churches have benefited by over £2 million.
The annual Ride & Stride takes place on the second Saturday in September. Those taking part are sponsored to walk or cycle to some of the 700+ churches and chapels of Kent which are open on the day. Half of the money raised goes to the walker's or cyclist's own church and the rest to the Friends.
