Anglican churches cover the Church of England and those churches that are in communion with it and each other and that share essentially its doctrines and order, such as the Church of Ireland, the Episcopal Church of Scotland, the Church of Wales, and the Protestant Episcopal Church in the U.S.
ChurchCare is the Church of England's natural resource in supporting parish churches, and works in partnership with various grant-giving bodies to provide funding for church projects.
ChurchCare supports over 16,000 parish churches and 42 cathedrals throughout England
ChurchCare grants are available to support parishes, dioceses and cathedrals in the conservation and repair of historic Anglican church buildings and their various contents.
During 2016, ChurchCare grants totalling £595,735 were awarded to 134 parish churches, while 63 cathedral grants worth £19.9 million were made.
Further information on ChurchCare's work during the year is available in the ChurchCare annual grants report for 2016.
