Church grants

Published on: 14 December 2021

The Diocese of Norwich’s new funding search engine is proving to be a big hit with parishes.

The Diocese’s subscription allows parishes to access 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.

To access the database please visit this link:

You will need your Parish Share Number (your parish treasurer will have this) and then simply select your church name. When inputting only use the numbers. If you do not know your Parish Share Number, please contact Robert Culyer on 01603 882326. If at any point you have questions about the Church Grants database, please email their support team who will be happy to help: vasb@puheputenagf.pb.hx

VAT is a grey area… but let us add a little colour!

Parochial Church Councils come within the scope of registration for VAT. Whether they do so in practice depends on the extent to which they supply items which are taxable. In most cases, the taxable turnover will not be great enough to call for registration. Some expenditure that most of our PCCs have are listed below, some of which attract reduced or zero-rated VAT.
