News and events Stories Get involved with the 'Bike Ride and Stride' 2019 The Lincolnshire Churches Trust Bike Ride and Stride will once again take place on the second Saturday in September (14th September 2019). Many churches have arranged to open their doors and some will also provide refreshments. Taking part will raise money for a chosen church and the trust, which will then provide grants to churches for repair or improvement work, enabling more people to enjoy our beautiful churches. Sponsor forms will be with Parish Organisers and churches in the summer, and so now is the time for participants to start planning their route – it doesn’t matter how people travel or the distance they wish to cover. This event is helped by the contribution made by Deanery Organisers, who are the first point of call for Parish Organisers. There are currently vacancies for Deanery Organisers in the following areas: Axholme Grimsby and Cleethorpes Holland Graffoe Calcewaithe and Candleshoe Manlake Yarborough. People who think that they might be able to help in one of these areas with the distribution of paperwork, contacting local churches and organisations, and informing people of the event, are asked to please contact Sarah Roberts via email or Nicholas Ridley (County Organiser) on 01476 55 00 55.
