The National Churches Trust is delighted to report that caring for churches, chapels and historic buildings in Yorkshire and the Humber has now been made easier following the launch of our new web based maintenance service called MaintenanceBooker.

Churches of all denominations in Yorkshire and the Humber can use the website to request online quotes for essential maintenance services from qualified contractors before then going on to book the maintenance jobs.

MaintenanceBooker is very straightforward to use so why not visit today; register your details and investigate what services are currently offered?

Furthermore, cost can be a major barrier to tackling maintenance tasks at your church but more help is at hand as you could be eligible to receive a Preventive Maintenance Micro-Grant to pay 50% of your church’s gutter clearance service if booked through MaintenanceBooker.

The grant has been made available by The Pilgrim Trust and there are up to 200 grants available each year. If your church is listed you may also be eligible for an award from the National Churches Trusts Maintenance Grant Programme.

The MaintenanceBooker service has been developed by the National Churches Trust in partnership with the national procurement company 2Buy2. Look out for further improvements to the website over the next few weeks and months as funding opportunities to expand the service beyond Yorkshire are explored.

The first job booked through MaintenanceBooker took place on Monday 5th June at St Augustine’s church in the rain. A report on the event is available on the National Churches Trust website at this link: A First for MaintenanceBooker.
