Four historic churches in the borough have been given a share of £45m in government funding to help preserve their heritage.

Local beneficiaries of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme received more than £8,000 in funding. These include the Kadampa Meditation Centre in Gedling, Holy Trinity Church in Lambley, All Hallows Church in Gedling and St Paul’s Daybrook.

Since 2010, the Places of Worship Fund has invested £346 million in listed churches, synagogues, mosques and temples. The fund provides grants towards the VAT incurred on eligible costs, such as works to the roofs, masonry and monuments integral to the buildings. 

Arts and Heritage Minister Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay said: As churches across the country fill up for Nativity plays and Christmas services, it’s a reminder of the huge role that they and other places of worship play in the lives of their community.

The Listed Places of Worship Scheme supports these precious buildings, which are cherished by people of all faiths and none.

With nearly 5,000 supported over the past year alone, I’m glad to see the difference it has made to visitors, worshippers, and the people who look after them for the benefit of future generations.”
