Yorkshire Churches Day has date for 2024

First published on: 13th May 2024

The Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust have announced the date for Yorkshire Churches Day 2024.

Taking place on Saturday, September 14, Yorkshire Churches Day is a chance for every place of worship in the county, including across our diocese, to open up and showcase the history and heritage found inside their buildings.  

The aim of the day is to encourage people to explore local churches even if they have never stepped foot inside one before.

It will be a day for those who are curious about history and the heritage of their local surroundings.

Once again, Yorkshire Churches Day is running in partnership with the Heritage Open Days festival, whose theme is ‘Routes – Networks – Connections’.

This year, in line with the Heritage Open Day theme, many churches are working together to put on trails, offering refreshments and entertainment to encourage visitors to spend a day exploring several different churches on foot, by bike or by car.

The YHCT provides grants to help churches of all Christian denominations with their repairs and maintenance costs and they rely on the support of donors and Friends to help keep places of worship open.

They are encouraging as many people as possible to get involved with the day, both churches to take part and participants to visit.
