Marsh Awards for Innovative Projects


Thanks to the generosity of the Marsh Christian Trust, the National Churches Trust holds a competition to find the Christian congregations running the most innovative community projects made possible through the installation of new facilities and improved accessibility in a place of worship within the last five years.

The awards look for projects that show the positive impact installing community facilities such a kitchens, cafes, toilets and improved access at places of worship has on churches and local communities.

The award scheme is now open for your nominations until 13 January 2017. 

If you are involved in a church that is serving its community in a new and exciting way, made as a result of changes or additions to the church buidling, why not consider a nomination? 

Last year’s winner was WiFi Wednesdays, a group that meets regularly at St Andrew’s Church in Blagdon, Somerset, to develop IT and mobile phone skills. The church had previously been little used, but now, thanks to new facilities and excellent planning, it hosts a range of events designed to meet the needs of its local area.
