About this Event

The National Churches Trust is supporting historic places of worship by providing free training for all involved with churches and chapels. Join us to discover how your place of worship can benefit from tourism; helping encourage visitors and raising funds.

This session will look at how you can develop a sustainable income from tourism by creating unique and bookable Experiences for groups.

It will include:

  • attracting UK and international tourists
  • getting to know the group travel market
  • advantages of working with international groups
  • types of inbound travellers
  • creating a bookable Experience
  • thinking about group size, time of year, visitor segment
  • pricing the package to market
  • making it bookable
  • marketing your Experience – what is your USP?
  • terms of agreement
  • building industry relationships

All involved in historic places of worship are invited to attend. This event is free of charge. The presentation (in pdf form) will be emailed to all attendees afterwards.

And before you join us…

A key way to ensure visitors can find and enjoy your place of worship is to be included on our church tourism gateway : www.explorechurches.org

Although some churches and chapels are still closed at present, their role supporting communities is more important than ever. More people are exploring their local area and heritage, or staycationing within the UK. Your virtual presence plays an essential part in that.

Add your place of worship to ExploreChurches and (even if it’s already there) make sure your entry is up to date and appealing. When we reopen our doors we can ensure visitors have all the information they need to find, enjoy and feel inspired by your place of worship.

Add your church today.
