Easter gift as Burton Dassett church receives funding boost 

A much-loved Warwickshire church is to share in a £323,687 funding payout from the National Churches Trust.  

A £10,000 National Churches Trust Cornerstone Grant will help fund the installation of a servery at the Grade I listed All Saints' church, Burton Dassett, helping the church to better serve its local community. 

Broadcaster and journalist Huw Edwards, Vice President of The National Churches Trust, said: “The UK's historic churches and chapels are a vital part of our national heritage. But to survive, many need to carry out urgent repairs and install modern facilities. The cost of this work is far beyond what most congregations can pay for themselves.”

“So I’m delighted that the church of All Saints, Burton Dassett, is being helped with a £10,000 National Churches Trust Grant. The new facility will help to ensure the church’s future as an important community building.” 

John Anderson and Bill Pearson, church wardens at All Saints' said: “We are delighted to have received this grant which gives us further confidence in providing these facilities for the benefit of the wider community.”


The church 

All Saints' is a Grade I listed church dating from the early 13th century. Additions were made in the following two centuries. Inside, the church rises steeply from west to east in seven stages and features some important exposed wall paintings.


The project

All Saints Church is a very popular venue and is used regularly for concerts, weddings, christenings, funerals and a variety of church, social and community events. 

The project plans to install a servery at the west end of the church. Outside, toilet facilities are planned for a second phase making the church more welcoming to visitors and worshippers alike.


Supporting church buildings

A total of 34 churches and chapels in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will benefit from the latest grants from the National Churches Trust, the charity supporting church buildings of all Christian denominations across the UK. 

These grants are the first to be made in 2019 by the National Churches Trust. In 2018 the National Churches Trust awarded grants of £1.2 million to help 202 projects at churches and chapels around the UK. 

Demand for funding from the National Churches Trust continues to grow, with 583 grant applications received in 2018, up from 473 grant applications in 2017, a 23% increase. 

The Trust funds churches of all denominations throughout the UK. Applications for grants can be made online at:
