Funding & Grants
Church Buildings continually require repairs and maintenance and this costs money.
Fortunately help is at hand with various pots of money, grant bodies and charities who may be willing to fund a wide variety of projects or specific items found in and around churches.
The ChurchCare website has a good selection of contacts and details relating to funding sources: http://www.churchcare.co.uk/churches/funding-and-grants/other-sources-funding
The Parish Resource website was developed by the Church of England’s National Stewardship Department and offers a wide range of resources to support all aspects of stewardship in the local church. We recommend that you visit this website to find practical guidance on developing your fundraising: http://www.parishresources.org.uk/
Fundraising events are a key part of church fundraising. Our sponsors, Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, have useful guidance on organising church events which you can access here: http://www.ecclesiastical.com/churchmatters/churchinsurance/church-insurance-made-simple/church-organised-events/index.aspx
LATEST NEWS (March 2019): NHCT has been allocated £30,000 to make grants to Nottinghamshire churches over the next two years towards installing roofalarms. As the spate of lead theft from churches seems to go on and on in waves, roof alarms are a very practical way of protecting churches from the damage and stress this causes. Please see the details on their website at http://nottshistoricchurchtrust.org.uk/applying-for-a-grant/
