Community Business in Places of Worship

Our national network charity Action with Communities in Rural England is supporting national charity, Plunkett Foundation in providing resources to encourage churches to work closely with their wider community so that more community owned and run businesses can operate within their premises.

From shops and cafes to post offices and farmers markets – vital services located in places of worship remain at the heart of their village or town. What’s more they can help a church survive through generating rent, attracting more people, helping to invest in the fabric of the building and opening-up new funding opportunities.

The £200,000 project, funded by Allchurches Trust, will provide a specialist support service and the bespoke advice needed to encourage new community businesses to thrive in places of worship.
