we are a charitable trust, established to raise funds for the

 restoration, preservation, repair, maintenance, improvement, beautification, and reconstruction of the church of St John the Baptist Great Rissington and the monuments, fittings, fixtures, stained glass, furniture, ornaments, and chattels in the church and of the churchyard belonging to the church for the benefit of the people


to do the same for the church as a building of historical importance or architectural value in the event of the church being declared redundant or otherwise ceasing to be used regularly for public worship. 

Update Jan 2021

We reached our target with thanks to all for your help and generosity. Roofing work commenced in September 2020 and is now nearly complete. Well done to Midland Conservation for carrying on with works (safely) during the Pandemic.

The pages  linked above will tell you more about this unique building, and about the five Souls brothers - all killed in service during World War One. A memorial to them , and others of Great Rissington who gave their lives in that war, is housed in the Church.

Registered with the Charities Commission. Registration number 1177389.

Trustees: Denis Clark; Richard Cleverly; Andy Couchman; Michael Hoyle; Graham Ramsay; Alex Ruff

Look to the left of the pin, where two lanes meet (satellite view is best), to see the church.
