Benefact Trust Launches New Fund to Support Capital Works on Christian Buildings

Resources and Support

07 March 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Christian charities, churches, cathedrals, and denominational bodies across the United Kingdom and Ireland can apply for funding to support capital works that preserve, conserve, and enhance Christian church and charity buildings.

Benefact Trust is offering grants for Christian charities and buildings to support capital works to protect and enhance Christian church and charity buildings, ensuring their continued use and viability, and the safeguarding of their heritage.

Through the Building Improvement Grants Fund, Christian organisations can apply for funding to support direct capital costs relating to the following types of work:

  • Essential, one-off repairs or other capital works to ensure the continued use or viability of a building (capital work must be considered urgent or necessary within 12 months).
  • Minor capital works or equipment purchases to meet operational or accessibility requirements (eg essential operational equipment, AV equipment, hearing loops, ramps etc).
  • Conservation or restoration of historic features (eg stained glass, carvings, interior, furnishings, clocks, tower bells, organs etc) that contribute to the preservation and appreciation of a building's heritage.
  • Other aesthetic enhancements (eg interior decoration, furnishings or public realm improvements) to improve indoor or outdoor spaces for users.
  • Energy efficiency/renewable energy measures (eg heating/lighting upgrades, solar panels etc) that improve the sustainability of church buildings/facilities and enable their continued use.

The average decision time for smaller grants (up to £25,000) is two months. Larger grants (over £25,000) are considered at grants committee and board meetings and can take between four and six months.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
