Inspired North East Inspired North Eastworks with local church congregations to help achieve a sustainable future for church buildings in the North East: as living places of worship, buildings used and enjoyed by local communities, welcoming places for tourists and pilgrims, and unique heritage assets.

A new initiative ‘Inspired Futures’ funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, will help six priority churches develop sustainable futures, helping with business plans, looking at ways forward with repairs, building on fundraising opportunities and new ways to engage communities in their heritage.
