National Churches Trust - Gateway Grants
The Gateway Grants Programme offers grants to places of worship for costs towards developing a church building project- such as feasibility studies, options appraisals, professional fees, surveys and other development costs- up to RIBA Planning Stage 1.
The aim is to help churches develop appropriate, high quality, well-researched projects before approaching a major grant funder. They prioritise applications that can demonstrate strong community engagement and sound plans for economic viability.
