New Round of Large Grants for Church Repairs


04 April 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding for structural repairs and maintenance work to places of worship.

National Churches Trust is now accepting applications for the next round of its Large Grants programme, for projects which align with the main outcomes of its new strategy:

  • Preserving heritage.
  • Promoting sustainability.
  • Inspiring support.

Places of worship of any Christian denomination and age can apply. Applications will be considered from listed and unlisted Christian places of worship across the UK.

Grants of £10,000 to £50,000 are available, though those above £40,000 are extremely limited.

The funding is for urgent and essential structural repair projects (costed at more than £80,000) to buildings that were originally built as churches, or the installation of kitchen and toilets (costed at more than £30,000).

Applications from the Trust’s priority areas are encouraged: North-East England, Northern Ireland and Wales, though this is not to the exclusion of churches in other areas.

The deadline for first-stage applications is midnight on 4 July 2023.


How To Apply

The fund is now open until midnight on 4 July 2023 for first stage applications.

Guidance notes and the online application form are available on the Trust's website.
