Allchurches Trust

Health & Social Care Heritage Religion Youth

The Allchurches Trust supports the mission and work of the Christian church and charitable projects that have a Christian foundation. The Trust likes to assist in areas of greatest social and economic deprivation. Trustees especially favour projects that show vision, illustrate enthusiastic support and demonstrate financial sustainability.

The Allchurches Trust offer grants of between £1,000 – £5,000 (occasionally higher) to support:

  • Churches of all denominations, to restore their historic buildings and open them for wider community benefit (must be members of Churches Together in England)
  • Charities addressing homelessness, poverty and isolation
  • Charities helping people whose lives are in crisis
  • Schools, colleges and charities that nurture young people and those in prison.
The Trust makes grants to further their charitable objective of promoting the Christian faith but are entirely independent of the Church of England and all other religious organisations.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Pre-application phone calls/emails are encouraged. Applications are reviewed within three to six months.
