Do you want to have an inspiring and rewarding experience? Meet new people and connect with the local community?

As a small charity we value the relationship we have with our dedicated group of over 200 volunteers. Most of our chapels are supported by an active Friends or Committee group who help raise money for their local chapel. Our volunteers organise a range of events at the chapels, including concerts, lectures, community arts led projects, school visits, community lunch days and groups who carry out work to protect the local enviroment as well as helping with all sorts of day-to-day maintenance tasks.  

Join our volunteers

Volunteers are always needed to join our groups of local volunteers. As a volunteer you can have the opportunity to meet new people, give back to the local community (great for a CV or towards part of a Duke of Edinburgh award), learn new skills through hands on maintenace of an historic place, and even take part in bell ringing in a few of our chapels.

A number of our chapels have their own website where you can find out more about the work of the volunteers and events taking place throughout the year.

 If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with an exisitng group or would like to set up your own group at one of our chapels, please contact us via this website. You can indicate which chapel you would like to support and we will redirect the infomation to the relevant group.

Alternatively, you can also email Viv Cooling, Local Community Officer at, vcooling@thecct.org.uk

If you are not able to help us as a volunteer, please consider becoming a supporter of HCT.
