Marshall’s Charity

Grants to help reduce carbon emissions

Bidding is now open for you to apply for money to help make your church more energy efficient and better for the environment.

Marshall’s Charity has granted funds to allow us to promote the reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in our diocese.

So, if you have proposed work costing between £1,000 and £10,000, then we’d like to hear from you.

We are particularly interested to speak to churches who have undertaken subsidised energy audits through Parish Buying. The audits contain a number of recommendations for each church that would help them to reduce GHG emissions.

However, all works and proposals will be considered. There are two criteria you must meet and they are; those applying should be:

  • on a green energy tariff or have a PCC resolution committing you to switch to a green energy tariff at the earliest possible contract renewal date.
  • signed up to the Eco Church scheme.

To submit an application, please write no more than an A4 page explaining what you want to do, the impact the changes will make, how much it will cost and whether this is a firm quote or just an estimate and finally, whether you are seeking the whole cost or part funding it yourself.

The deadline for proposals is Wednesday 30 June at midday and for more information and to submit your proposal, please contact Karen Adams at
