UK Church Architecture Awards

The UK Church Architecture Awards honour excellence and creativity in church architecture. The Awards are run by the National Churches Trust and the Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association.

JUNE 2020 UPDATE Due to the coronavirus lockdown and pandemic, the UK Church Architecture Awards will take not place in 2020.  However, we are planning an exciting virtual celebration of the best church architecture of the last ten years. This is likely to take place on Thursday 5 November.  Please visit this page again in July for more details.
