At the September 2023 Grants Meeting the Committee awarded grants to all seven churches that had applied for projects ranging from repairs to bells, damaged polyphant stonework and maintenance to make buildings watertight.
Since March 2007 a total of 296 grants have been made, totalling £1,006,645, from Cornwall Historic Churches Trust funds, with funds provided to the Cornwall Historic Churches Trust by The Duke of Cornwall’s Benevolent Fund, The Cornwall Heritage Trust and Partnership Grants made by the National Churches Trust on the recommendation of the Cornwall Historic Churches Trust.
A limited number of £500 maintenance grants or “kickstart” grants for assistance with initial assessment costs for major projects are still available for distribution this year. Churches and chapels of any denomination can apply. For full details see our grants page.
