GRANTS AVAILABLE

There can be no doubt that maintaining a church or chapel can cost a lot of money and delaying a repair always means a bigger bill later.


Beds and Herts have a rich heritage of ancient buildings - and some impressive modern ones too - all of which need to be kept in good condition to allow them to function as places of worship and be an obvious Christian presence in our communities. A well maintained church makes a powerful statement to the world outside.


It is not always easy for church congregations to find the cash to deal with problems with their church building but it is essential they do - keeping the weather out for example has to be a number one priority. Repairs can be expensive, demanding a vast amount of energy to fund-raise for the balance.


If a church is having difficulty closing a funding gap to repair their church it might be worthwhile speaking to this Trust. A grant could make a real difference to local efforts to achieve what some might have thought at the outset, as the impossible.


The cash comes mainly from the annual sponsored Bike 'n Hike, held every year on the second Saturday in September. More details about this can be found here.
