The first round of Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust’s grant applications is open now, until 30 April 2020.
In Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and North Bristol, we have over 620 historic churches, chapels and meeting houses, so the Trust’s grants are of vital importance to help these buildings stay alive as active centres of community life and landmarks of the wonderful architectural heritage of this area. The Trust raises funds and provides £150,000 in grants for churches annually in these areas.
Jonathan MacKechnie-Jarvis, the Trust’s Grants Chairman, said, “At GHCT we are very open-minded and we very rarely say no to a project. We have a simple application process and we make decisions quickly. We understand the importance of these grants to the local people and getting their churches back on track. We are often the first successful application in smaller local projects and we know our grants can be that first big encouragement”
