Projects must be consistent with Allchurches Trust Limited (ATL)’s objects which are to promote the Christian faith, to contribute to the funds of charitable institutions or associations and to carry out any charitable purpose. We like to assist in areas of greatest need. We especially favour projects that show vision, illustrate enthusiastic support, and demonstrate financial sustainability.
Successful applications frequently involve improvements to buildings, essential repairs to and renewal of historic buildings, and the installation of better facilities such as improved accessibility, lavatories, kitchens, church re-orderings and meeting rooms for community use. Additionally we can look at pump priming new initiatives particularly around training, mission and church growth. We have provided grants to programmes that encourage the training and development of lay and ordained people, and that enable evangelism and church growth. We have also supported charities such as hospices, schools and trusts. Our website, annual reports and annual reviews include reports of recent grants which illustrate the huge variety of schemes we have supported.
