About Us

Our Aims

Music in Country Churches is now in its 32nd season of organising musical concerts to help raise funds to maintain the fabric of country churches. The Trust was set up in 1989 by the late Alan Wilkinson with the active support of The Prince of Wales, who has attended over 50 concerts.

It has arranged concerts in over 55 country churches and made donations of nearly £600,000 to the churches that hosted its concerts. Artists who have taken part in the concerts include the Borodin String Quartet, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Murray Perahia, Sir Colin Davis, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, and many others.

Music in Country Churches has visited some of the larger churches where it has held concerts. These return visits have been aimed at fundraising to help with the running costs of the smaller churches within their benefices.

“Our parish churches are an inalienable part of Englishness, the vertical centrepiece in every village composition, and the focus of so much that is important in our lives.”
