Ways we can help
If you feel that we can help in any of the following ways please contact us.
We can offer advice on all of the administrative matters a church might encounter.
Trusteeship can be a minefield for the uninitiated and we are always willing to offer advice, having particular expertise in this regard. We are also able to serve as trustees of chapels and various trust funds and we have a property inspection programme for assisting churches of which the Corporation is a trustee. In addition, we are able to administer trusts set up under wills and other instruments.
We are able to help churches maximise their resources through our Gift Aid scheme, which is particularly helpful to churches that may not have in-house expertise or to individuals who wish to give anonymously.
We can offer grants and loans for building work or major renovation projects although the Grace Baptist Trust Corporation is constitutionally obliged to offer financial support only to churches having a Strict and Particular Baptist ethos.
Is your church a Strict and Particular Baptist Church?
We are also able to make grants to members of such churches from the following funds:
B A Warburton Memorial FundGrants are available to defray the costs that men incur in preparing for the Strict Baptist Ministry and are designated towards the cost of course fees or required reading.
Ministers' Aid FundThe Fund is used to make small one-off grants to pastors as short term needs arise.
The Pastors' FundThe Fund is used to make annual grants to pastors in financial need, whether those pastors are currently serving or retired.
Benevolent FundWe are able to provide small one-off grants to needy persons connected with such churches.
