Church tourism

Visiting churches is popular with tourists. Without too much effort, your church can provide a welcome, information on its history and activities for families and children. With a little more effort, you can provide themed activities and events, particularly during the summer when may people visit our wonderful county for a holiday.

There are a couple of good resources available to support your church in developing itself as a tourist attraction.

National Churches Trust run an excellent website, Explore Churches which promotes churches as tourist attractions. Any church can register to be included on the website. At present, only a handful of rural Devon churches are listed. Get yours on there too by downloading their registration form.

Inspired NorthEast is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project which supports church congregations in the North East as they consider or embark upon church development projects. The have a produced an excellent toolkit around encouraging visitors to churches.
