Welcome to the National Churches Trust's Grant Application Site 

Our grants are available to support work to church buildings throughout the UK that fulfill the eligibility criteria. We can fund maintenance work, repair work, installation of kitchens and accessible toilets, and some project development work. You must have 50% of funds in place, permissions secured and valid (unless yours is a project development scheme), and a qualified professional leading the project (conservation accredited if the building is listed). Our grants will never exceed 50% of the project costs. 

As demand regularly exceeds the funds we have available, we have to limit the sorts of projects we can consider. If your project is not eligible we hope that the information on our website with alternative sources of funding, as well as other resources and buildings advice pages, will be helpful to you. 

Please note that we place a strong emphasis on maintenance and being open. We encourage all applicants and grantees to have a maintenance plan and require grantees to be open more than 100 days a year and to feature on our Explore map. Further guidance and help on these can be found on our website National Churches Trust - regular maintenance and National Churches Trust - your church

Please read the guidance note available on the relevant programme page of our website before commencing and if you still have questions please refer to our FAQs. For additional help, please email us: grants@nationalchurchestrust.org
