New applications for National Churches Trust grants

Published: Thursday, January 30, 2014


The National Churches Trust is accepting applications from churches, chapels and meeting houses seeking funding for repairs and modernisation.

The National Churches Trust supports a wide variety of projects through its grant programmes. From repairing a roof to helping to install an accessible toilet  our grants enable places of worship to continue to serve their local communities.

Churches, chapels or meeting houses in England, Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands or Northern Ireland, open for regular public worship and belonging to a denomination that is a member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland are eligible to apply for a National Churches Trust grant.

Repair Grants help places of worship to become wind and watertight. Community Grants help towards the cost of installing essential facilities, such as kitchens and toilets and for improving access.

The National Churches Trust also works with local churches trusts on Partnership Grants which can provide funding for urgent repair projects.

In January 2014,  the National Churches Trust announced a £645,000 rescue package for 45 of the UK’s most historic and community minded Christian places of worship.

Details of churches, chapels and meeting houses to be awarded grants from the current round of applications are likely to be announced in June 2014.

Full details and online application forms are available on the grants section of the National Churches Trust website.
