Repair grants for places of worship

English Heritage, with the Heritage Lottery Fund, are running a Repair Grants for Places of Worship in England scheme, which is available to support urgent repair projects to listed places of worship in England, for example the repair of roofs, gutters, towers etc where the overall project cost is estimated to be in excess of £10,000. They welcome applications from any faith group that worships in a listed building, regardless of the type of building (for example, a building formerly used as a cinema but now used by a formally constituted faith group for worship at least six times a year would be eligible).

Applications can be made in two batches each year, with this year's application deadlines being 30 June 2010 for grade I and II listed buildings and 30 September 2010 for grade II buildings. An application pack can be downloaded from here where you can also find details of your local English Heritage regional office to help you with any queries.
