Small grants and loans

Usually up to a maximum of £20,000 grant and £20,000 loan (interest free) are available from each Archdeaconry. More information is found here.

Large loans

Loans for sums up to about £200,000 may be applied for.  These are interest bearing (usually 2% above base rate) and typically need to be repaid over 5 years or less.  More information is available here.

For longer term loans e.g. for a mortgage on housing for assistant clergy, parishes are advised to approach other lenders who are familiar with churches and charities.  A list is available here.

Special grants

The Bishop of London’s Mission Fund currently awards grants for youth and children’s work.
