“Many churches in the UK remain in disrepair as the Christmas season approaches after last year saw a 75% increase in Heritage Crime attacks.
“A spokesperson for the National Churches Trust said: “”A gift of £100,000 would be a dream come true for many churches needing urgent repairs as many major building projects cost at least £200,000. “Each year we receive many more applications than we are able to fund. “With £100,000 we award 20 small grants of £5,000 to help fund urgent maintenance work to ensure that churches are windproof and watertight and able to serve their local communities at Christmas and throughout the winter season.”
If you are looking to spend £100,000 our Congregational Treasurer would be delighted to hear from you. It would certainly help our Roof Fund or, if you’d prefer, it can be added to our “For Others” fund for charities outside Trinity. Thank you!
