News from The National Churches Trust

Foundation Grants are available to places of worship of all Christian denominations around the United Kingdom towards work that addresses urgent maintenance, as identified as a priority in a recent Quinquennial Inspection Report or survey. The work should form a stand-alone projects costing between £1,000 and £10,000 excluding VAT. Grants range from £500 to £3,000. The next deadline is 12 May 2019 for a decision in July.

Maintenance Booker Based on the principle that prevention is better than cure MaintenanceBooker can help churches and chapels avoid having to carry out major repairs to their buildings by making it easy to carry out regular maintenance. The service is available to churches, chapels and historic buildings across England and Wales and provides an online ‘one stop shop’ where churches and chapels can book accredited contractors for services including gutter clearance, tree maintenance, lightning protection system inspections and asbestos management services. 

Explore Churches Churches, chapels and meeting houses are literally 'treasure houses' of heritage, history and community. Through ExploreChurches the National Churches Trust aims to develop a high quality resource for visitors and churches alike. We would like to include all churches, chapels and meeting houses that are open for visitors (even if this is only during specific hours or on certain days).
