Gateway Grants


The Gateway Grant Programme (for churches, chapels and meeting houses) is now open!

The Gateway Grant Programme offers grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 towards project development and investigative work up to RIBA planning stage 1, to support churches preparing for a major project, and in developing their project to the point at which they can approach a major grant funder. Grants will never exceed 50% of the project costs for this phase.

Follow the links below to review the full eligibility criteria, to read the guidance note, and to link to the online application form.

The first deadline will be 10 January 2019 for a decision in March 2019.

The Programme will also offer some grants to local church trusts for strategic or capacity building projects - details to follow.
