Grants and interest-free loans

As well as modest grants, the Trust can offer churches up to £20,000 in interest-free loans for the repair and improvement of places of worship across the county of Cambridgeshire.

The Grants Secretary will be pleased to help with your application for a grant or interest-free loan – just ring or email him.

We like to keep a record of churches considering applying for a grant, as it greatly helps us in assessing how many applications are in the pipeline. Even if you just want to download the forms to discuss the matter with your own church council, would you please advise the Grants Secretary that you have done this.
