St Paul’s Kinross receives £30,000

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Kinross will benefit from £30,000 to address urgent roof repairs. St. Paul's successfully applied for the grant through the Government-funded Listed Places of Worship: Roof Repair Fund.
Our Bell Tower roof has been in urgent need of repair for many months and that part of our church is currently locked for Health and Safety reasons. The main roof metal work and South side main elevation slating are also in their later stages of life. This grant will enable us to have a safe, watertight, fully functioning vibrant church again. This means our plans to re-order the interior for the benefit of all who attend, and the wider community, can be put into action.
This money is part of a wider funding package of £22.9 million to 401 historic places of worship across the UK. The fund was launched by the Chancellor in his Autumn Statement in December 2014 and the funding package has now seen a total of 903 places of worship across the UK receive a share of £55 million.
The Fund is administered by the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) on behalf of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
