Methodist Churches in the UK and Ireland can apply for funding to run building development projects that focus on church growth, community engagement and improving disabled access and facilities.
Funded primarily by donations from Methodist Insurance PLC, the Allchurches Trust’s Methodist Grants Programme will provide grants of up to £60,000, with more funding awarded in the most disadvantaged areas.
Projects previously supported under the programme include a church renovation which provided a larger and more flexible space for community groups and worshippers, and the expansion of a local church’s outreach programme by offering a day centre.
Applicants must have already raised at least 30% of the project cost before applying.
Applications can be made at any time.
