• 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.

    Calling all SCTG member churches – a half day of helpful ideas for your churches Handy Hints for happy visitors We have a volunteer church to host a half day happening for members. This first one will be in Shrewsbury Unitarian Church, High Street Shrewsbury, a church very historic and one many of you are unlikely to have been inside. Now is your chance. The morning of 10 th May, 10am until 12.30, will be low key with practical ideas and suggestions that could work in your church, however small or big. Prayer points. Signage, free gifts, visitor books etc.

    2 people will be welcome from any member churches at no cost.  It is also a chance to swap ideas with other members. We will need a minimum number of 10 people to make this work.

    Contact secretary@discovershropshirechurches.co.uk to sign up. The names of people and churches and contact details are all we require. Non members may attend at a cost of £10 per person. Contact email above for more details of how to enrol.
