How We Work

Annual Ride & Stride
  • Legacies and Donations
  • Friends Subscriptions 
  • Gift Aid Tax rebates

To date close on £250,000 has been raised enabling over 100 churches and chapels to benefit.


NB. Grant applications are considered by the Trust at their meetings held in January, May, and September each year. On that basis, it is important that applicants submit their applications by the last date of the preceding month, in order that they can be circulated to the Grants Committee in advance for their consideration.

Here is our Policy on Award of Grants.

Grant Application forms can be found on the ‘Downloads’ page.
