If you are considering undertaking repairs or improvements to your church or chapel building, you may wish to consider applying for financial support.
Whilst the Baptist Union of Wales offers numerous grants to support ministry and mission, we are unable to provide grant funding for building relating projects. However, you may wish to consider applying for an interest free loan from the Baptist Building Fund for Wales. Please see the BBFW page on this website for more details and an application form.
As an Union, we are keen to support our Churches and would be happy to meet with you to consider how your Church can make best use of its building and facilities.
Whilst we are not able to provide grant funding, there are many external grant funding organisations who offer practical and financial support to church building projects. Please see below a list of grant funding bodies which have been known to support BUW Churches in recent years.
