Welsh Church Funds

The Welsh Church Act 1914 secured the disestablishment of the Anglican Church in Wales and made provision for the funding of church projects.

The fund is no longer used exclusively for church projects.

Newport City Council receives an annual allocation which can be awarded for a wide range of charitable objectives including educational, social, recreational and cultural purposes.

Applications can be made by churches and chapels, organisations and individuals.

The Guidance Note (pdf) explains eligibility.

Please note that Welsh Church Fund applications received from January 2015 onwards will be considered in October each year.
