• SCTG is a network of unparalleled Shropshire churches and chapels in the county, which have dominated the landscape and life of communities for more than a thousand years.  All our churches offer visitors both a warm welcome and features of interest.

    SCTG is an ecumenical body of self-motivated people interested in the development and promotion of church tourism to enhance the visitor’s appreciation and enjoyment of Shropshire. SCTG is a fully constituted voluntary organisation.
