Churches supporting communities in areas that have been hit by the recent flooding are being invited to apply for exceptional grants from Allchurches Trust to support their efforts as they continue to respond to the needs of local people.
The trust’s grants team is already reaching out to churches and dioceses in the areas that have been most affected, but is encouraging churches of all Christian denominations in the UK and Ireland that have incurred additional costs due to supporting local flood efforts to get in touch.
The grants available can cover churches’ additional heating, lighting and cleaning costs, but also food and drink provided for residents affected by the floods and emergency response teams and other community-focused initiatives related to the flooding.
Tim Carroll, chairman of Allchurches Trust, said: “We know that churches across the UK are playing a vital role in the emergency response to the recent flooding, providing much need practical and emotional support. We hope that our funding can help cover the additional costs they will have incurred as a result, and enable them to continue their efforts in supporting their local communities in this time of great need.”
