Partnership Grants - Apply



Thank you for your interest in our Partnership Grants. Applications for Partnership Grants should be made via your local churches trust if they are listed below. They then make the decision which projects to put forward under the scheme. Applications for a Partnership Grant cannot be made directly to the National Churches Trust.

The local churches trusts taking part in the Partnership Grants programme are listed below (A-Z by county).

Click on the name of your local trust for their contact details and more information. If your local trust is not listed, you are still able to apply under their own grants programme.  For more information on the national network of local churches trusts dedicated to supporting places of worship please click here.

Terms and Conditions for places of worship offered a National Churches Trust Partnership Grant Award in England and Scotland can be reviewed here. Places of worship being recommended to us for awards should be aware of these in advance of the submission to us.

We are pleased to offer these grants in Scotland via Scotland's Churches Trust. Please apply to them directly to be considered under both programmes. 


We have extended our Partnership Grants into Wales. The programme is open to all Christian denominations in Wales that meet the eligibility crtieria, but Church in Wales churches have an additional opportunity to be awarded a match-funding grant from the Church in Wales. Find out more.
