Ely Methodist Church has received grant funding to carry out essential repairs to the building.
Brickwork, stonework and stained glass windows at the Chapel Street venue will all undergo repairs thanks to a grant of £1,000 provided by Cambridgeshire Historic Churches Trust.
The trust helps congregations with the repair and enhancement of their places of worship by offering grants and loans.
The main source of funding for the trust is its annual Ride, Drive and Stride event held each September, where cyclists, motorists and pedestrians of all ages throughout Cambridgeshire find people to sponsor them for the number of churches, chapels and colleges which they visit on the day.
Half the money is returned to the participants nominated church or chapel, the other half goes to help churches with the cost of repairs.
