PROVIDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO HELP WITH THE RESTORATION AND REPAIR OF CHURCHES IN THE NORTH EAST.

The Northumbria Historic Churches Trust (NHCT) was set up in 1980 to help keep Christian churches of all denominations across the North East – from the Tweed to the Tees – in good repair.

Thanks to a number of very significant legacies the Trust typically awards grants in the range of £2,500 to £10,000.  See the steps below to check if your church is eligible to apply. Please refer to our Grants Awarded page for past successful projects. 

The Trust’s principal purpose is to help churches with the cost of restoration and repairs.

We offer grants to Christian churches of any denomination that are open regularly for worship, and are located in the North East of England, from ‘the Tweed to the Tees’.
