...keeping Somerset's churches & chapels alive

What We Do

We raise money with the intention of passing on our income as soon as possible to churches and chapels in need. In Somerset many buildings are historically important, architecturally interesting or beautiful and often in tiny villages where congregations are sparse. Since the founding of the Trust our support has been given for works involving repair of the fabric of the building, but lately, as the need becomes more urgent for religious buildings to play a greater community role, we have extended our remit to include works that enhance or provide facilities and access.

Workmen on the roofThere are approximately seven hundred places of Christian worship in Somerset and, since its founding the Trust has made more than four hundred and fifty grants totalling over £780,000. Our case studies give details of some more recent projects the Trust has supported.

If your church or chapel is in need of repair or improvement of its facilities, we may be able to help! See our Grants page for more information.
