Church Growth Trust

We aim to safeguard independent church properties for future Gospel use and ensuring these properties are fit for their God-given purpose. We provide professional services from trusteeship to architectural support and everything in between.

We do this because we want to help independent churches secure their future at the heart of their community by helping to keep church buildings for their original use and fit for purpose. We are passionate about offering our skills, experience and practical support in a way that serves the Church and sees God’s Kingdom grow.
