Honorary Secretary for the Buckinghamshire Historic Churches Trust

If you are interested in churches and enjoy administration this is the job for you!

The Buckinghamshire Historic Churches Trust (BHCT) raises and administers funds for the preservation, repair, maintenance and upkeep of the fabric of historic buildings in Buckinghamshire used for public worship by the Church of England or any other religious body.

The Honorary Secretary deals with grant applications, organises and may attend the Inspection Committee visits to the applicant churches and services the three meetings annually at which the Trustees are invited to agree the grants recommended by the Inspection Committee.  He/She is invited to the meetings of the Appeal Committee which oversees fundraising.   The Honorary Secretary is welcome at the Trust’s various events.

Penny Keens, the current postholder, who is retiring, would love to talk to any interested person and has thoroughly enjoyed her time with the Trust.  Please email penny@pkeens.plus.com if you would like further information or to arrange for an informal discussion about the role.
