Registered as a Charity No. 283623
The Heritage Trust unites those who have a particular interest in and affection for the Priory Church. It promotes greater knowledge of the religious, social and architectural history of the Church. It also raises funds to ensure that the church building is maintained, externally and internally, in the best possible condition. It is not itself a religious charity.
The Trust is committed to ensuring that the church building is maintained in the best possible condition and visitors are able to learn something of its history and significance. During 2008 the Trust commissioned and funded the graphic panels in the Cloister which provide an historical introduction for visitors.
The Choir Endowment Fund is held by the Trust as a means of ensuring the future of choral music at St Bartholomew's by building up a substantial endowment.
