The Diocese of Norwich is excited to announce that we have subscribed to an online database of hundreds of funding sources specifically for churches and other Christian causes provided by Church Grants.

Church Grants list funding opportunities covering both capital and social outreach campaigns with many different thematic search options available.

You will be able to search and save tailored searches and keep these on your personal church login. You will be to access the database free of charge for the next three years, up until June 2024.

The Church Grants team will also be running various online training for the diocese over this period so watch out for more details on that.
