A one-off capital grant scheme worth £1.1m has been made available for listed places of worship until April 2013. The Church of England and the National Churches Trust will distribute the funds.
The Church of England has received £781,000 which it will allocate across its dioceses. The National Churches Trust has received £319,000 and will run a grant scheme open to all listed places of worship that are not in the Church of England’s care.
Improving access and facilities
Grants will allow listed places of worship across the country to create new extensions and facilities, including toilets and kitchens, and to improve access and energy efficiency.
