The National Churches Trust’s Cornerstone Grants Programme offers grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 towards the cost of urgent structural repair projects costed at more than £100,000 including VAT.
Places of worship of any denomination and age can apply. The Trust will consider applications from listed and unlisted Christian places of worship across the UK. The Trust continue to encourage applications from their priority areas – North East England, Northern Ireland and Wales – but this is not to the exclusion of churches in other areas.
The Trust will also consider projects that introduce kitchens and accessible toilets to enable increased community use, costed at more than £30,000 including VAT. Grants will never exceed 50% of the project cost.
The closing date for applications is the 5th November 2018.
