Fabric Repairs – ChurchCare

Grants are available for PCCs towards the eligible costs of essential fabric repairs in architecturally or historically significant Anglican churches in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The grants are offered by The Wolfson Foundation and ChurchCare in partnership.

Next closing date: Monday 12 September 2016 for a December funding decision.

Eligibility criteria

Applications are considered on the grounds of the historic and architectural significance of the building and on a parish’s engagement with the history and interpretation of the site/building. They also look at the essential nature of the work required and the ability of the parish to give financially to the project. If offered, grants are available for 12 months from the date of the award, so parishes need to consider carefully when to send an application so that they may benefit from the funding while work is in progress. Grants cannot be made for any work that has been completed by the time an offer may be made.

Our cathedrals and church buildings were built for the glory of God, for worship and mission. They are repositories of our shared history and living buildings serving the whole community.

ChurchCare is the Church of England’s national resource, adding value from the centre to support over 16,000 parish churches, 42 cathedrals and our strategic campaigns, like Shrinking the Footprint – the Church of England’s environmental campaign – and Open and Sustainable Churches.

ChurchCare supports all those in parishes, dioceses and cathedrals caring for their buildings today and for the enjoyment of future generations. It is the comprehensive source of information for everyone managing a church building.
