A Proud Tradition of Cathedral Funding

Allchurches Trust is proud to make annual contributions to the repair, conservation, music, worship and mission in each one of England’s magnificent cathedrals.  We also fund the cathedrals of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

Allchurches supports three Choral Scholars and one Organ Scholar at Hereford Cathedral. These gap year students live together close to the cathedral, train choristers, support a schools programme and sing in the Three Choirs Festival.

At Liverpool Cathedral, our grant enables the Assistant Director of Music and Choral Animateur to run a Junior Choir of 65 members, stage three Big Sings and work with schools throughout the diocese.

Thanks to our grant to Durham Cathedral, its iconic Central Tower has been repaired by the Cathedral’s stonemasons and visitors can safely enjoy magnificent views from its roof.

Durham Cathedral is one of four historic sites on the GCSE History syllabus this year and our grant is helping the Education Team to develop teaching materials.

St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast is using our grant to teach children from different communities to sing and interact together and to sing to a standard that makes them eligible to be choristers.

St Patrick’s, Armagh, used our grant to treat a serious outbreak of dry rot.

Oban Cathedral on the West Coast of Scotland has used Allchurches Trust grants for annual Crib Services and an Easter Dawn Service at McCaig’s Tower, a prominent Oban landmark, attended by local people of all faiths and none and many visitors. They also support Hope Kitchen, a drop in centre for the homeless and marginalised, some of whom have joined the Oban Cathedral's congregation for worship.
