The Role

Do you love church buildings and want them to remain a sustainable part of our heritage and playing a vital role in community life? Perhaps you have experience helping keep historic buildings open and well maintained, or have championed their social and community value, or have experience leading church building or engagement projects? Then please consider joining our grants committee.

We are looking for at least two new members for our independent grants committee. The committee has the key responsibility of allocating the Charity’s annual grants budget of around £1.5million. We strive to ensure our committee has experience which spans the UK and across denominations, and we seek members with a range of interests and insights. Potential candidates may be incumbents, heritage professionals, tourism experts, fundraisers or church volunteers to name a few. We are especially keen to recruit a new member based in Wales/Cymru.


About the National Churches Trust

Churches, chapels and meeting houses are impressive, exciting and surprising places, and we want to see them kept open and well used. Whether people seek quiet reflection, access to critical community services, a place to worship, or a space to explore, we believe these buildings should be cherished, supported, and available to all. Working together with churches across all four nations and all denominations, we help to maintain these wonderful buildings and keep them thriving today, and tomorrow.
