Keeping Somerset Churches & Chapels Alive
Join Somerset Churches Trust to help to keep our churches and chapels alive for worship and the community and enjoy activities such as our annual talk.
Step inside some of our historic churches and chapels from the comfort of your own home!
We welcome applications from churches and chapels of all denominations for repairs and improvements to enable wider community use. Submit your grant application by Friday 9th December 2022 for consideration at our meeting on Monday 16th January 2023.
We are an independent non-denominational body raising money and making grants for the preservation, repair and improvement of churches and chapels open for Christian worship in the historic county of Somerset. We also encourage greater interest and involvement by all members of the community in the magnificent heritage of religious buildings.
Our grants help to cover repairs to the main fabric of the churches in our parishes and to help with improvements and alterations to facilities and access to allow greater community use.
