Grants of between £500 and £5,000 (exceptionally up to £10,000) are available to churches across the UK requiring urgent maintenance works and small repairs identified as high priority within a recent Quinquennial Inspection, Building Survey or Condition Report.
The funding will enable listed and unlisted Christian places of worship, of any denomination, to investigate or address small problems and control building deterioration. This could include improvements to rainwater systems; removing vegetation growth from buildings; replacing gutter systems; addressing lost, damaged or slipped roof tiles; internal repairs to ceilings and walls; and electrical work.
Project costs should be up to £20,000 incl. VAT and awards will never exceed 50% of the costs.
The funding is made available through the National Churches Trust Small Grants Programme, which will accept applications until midnight on the 29th February 2024.
