National Churches Trust - Gateway Grants Programme 2019-2023

Mon 23 Sep 2019

Grants are available for listed and unlisted Christian places of worship of any denomination in the UK to support developing a church building project.

Grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 are available.

The National Churches Trust supports church and chapel buildings open for worship throughout the UK. It funds urgent repairs and modernisation, provides expert advice on church maintenance and on how churches can continue to serve local communities and promote church heritage and tourism.

The National Churches Trust has launched its new grants programme in line with the Trust's new strategy for 2019-2023.

The funding is for projects which can demonstrate how they meet the outcome in line with the new strategy:

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

The Gateway Grants programme is primarily intended to support churches preparing for a major project, and in developing their project to the point at which they can approach a major grant funder. However, some funding will be directed to local church trusts for strategic or capacity building projects.

Applications are considered three times a year. The next deadline for 2020 applications is 9 January 2020.
