ChurchCare's 2015 annual grants report now published

This report is an overview of our various grant schemes to help parishes, friends groups and chapters with both fabric repairs and conservation of historic furnishings and artworks in their churches and cathedrals.

None of this work would be achievable without the help of our various partners including the Department of Culture Media and Sport, The Wolfson Foundation, The Pilgrim Trust, The Radcliffe Trust and The Goldsmiths' Company as well as the generosity of individual patrons supporting the pressing needs of our country's historic churches and cathedrals.

For further information on how you can support our churches and cathedrals please get in touch with our Fundraising and Development Officer, Joseph Friedrich at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

CCB 20015 GR Cover

Piloting an innovative and sustainable model for underused churches. This is an exciting time in the Virtuous Circles project. Having secured a Heritage Lottery Fund grant at the end of last year the project team have been hard at work at developing this innovative concept. Using St Michael's church in Dulas, Herefordshire as the pilot the aim of the project is to create a sustainable use model for churches across the country. 

A carefully designed, environmentally friendly and reversible structure is placed in the church allowing the provision of short stay tourist accommodation. The rental income from this is then fed back into the conservation of the building creating a virtuous circle of reuse and repair. The project provides a sustainable future for the church while ensuring that it remains open to the public for a proportion of the year.  The concept can be used in any church, to support new uses for communities and worship.

To find out more take a look at this leaflet.
