Buildings for Mission

Minor Repairs and Improvements Grant

The Buildings for Mission Minor Repairs and Improvements Grants Fund is open to application for all churches in the diocese who want to repair or improve their church building, to secure the fabric of the building, or to grow and support mission within the church.
The grants will be issued for church building repairs and improvements that support the diocesan priorities and/or deanery plans and will be managed by the Church Building Support Officer (CBSO) who will work with the applicant church, the DAC, and other Church House teams where relevant.
The process is designed to be consultative. An independent panel has been formed to oversee the applications.
Churches can apply for any repair or improvement works that meet the eligibility criteria.
Where much greater works are required, the CBSO will advise and signpost the church to apply for suitable external funding.
The grants available are:
  • small grants, up to £5,000
  • large grants, £5,000-10,000
NB. This process does not in any way remove the requirement for the PCC to obtain faculty or approval under list B, as necessary, or any other necessary permission before the work goes ahead. The offer of a grant does not imply support for the proposal for the purposes of faculty.
