Grants from the Government!

Let’s start this new venture with some very good news. If you care for a listed place of worship then allow yourself a sigh of relief. The Government has recently announced the extension for a further year of the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme – or LPWGS for short.

What is the LPWGS? This is a way of applying for a 20% grant to compensate you for the VAT you’ve paid on a range of works to your church or chapel, or mosque, synagogue or any listed place of worship. It’s a simple process to apply – go to for more information or ring 0800 500 3009 to speak to a human.

With a 20% grant available via a pretty easy application process – what is there not to like? And you have until the end of March 2022 to apply.
