The National Churches Trust Partnership Grants Programme 2017 is now open for applications from Northern Ireland

The Partnership Grants programme offers grants of between £2,500 and £10,000 towards the cost of urgent and essential structural repair projects, usually costing under £100,000 (incl. VAT and fees), or the installation of kitchen and toilets, usually costing under £25,000 (incl. VAT and fees).

Are you eligible?

• Is yours a Christian place of worship in Northern Ireland, and open for regular public worship?

• Was your place of worship built as a place of worship originally, and are the works proposed due to take place within or attached to the place of worship?

• Is the project in the planning stage, i.e. not yet started, but deliverable within 2 years?

• Have you already raised 50% of the total project cost?

• Is the project being led by a qualified professional, with conservation accreditation if it is a listed building?

• Is the church open for at least 40 days a year beyond worship use, or will it be on completion?

The next deadline for applications is 7 June 2017 for a decision in July.
