We have worked for 32 Cathedrals, 106 parish churches, 7 dioceses, and a wide variety of faith organisations. We tailor our service to the requirements of clients, offering full campaign management, training, strategic support, research, bid-writing and advice on social investment, as necessary.
Current and recent clients include:
St Mary's Collegiate Church, Warwick - recent
St Mary’s Warwick is architecturally outstanding and is one of the UK’s Greater Churches, with a requirement over and beyond those of a typical parish church to offer facilities to large numbers of visitors, host special services and fund the specialist maintenance and repair of these large buildings. Like many of the churches in this group, St Mary’s has a Grade 1 listing.
We have helped the church with projects ranging from a stewardship campaign in 2011, to securing a significant grants for highly specialised repair projects, work which continues with new project phases in planning.
Christ Church, St Leonards on Sea - recent
Over three years, Craigmyle worked with Christ Church, St Leonards on Sea, a Grade 2* listed building, to secure funding for urgent restoration works to its exterior elevations. In total, £530,000 in funding was secured for the project, including two major grants from the Historic England’s Cultural Recovery Fund for Heritage totalling £280,000, and a £250,000 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. This funding has allowed Christ Church to complete all of the restoration work to the external façade of the building, leading to its removal from the Heritage at Risk Register, and to create an associated heritage community engagement project. Craigmyle is proud to have helped the church secure a level of funding that has never before been achieved.
St Peter and St Paul, Coleshill, Warwickshire - current client
A large medieval church at the heart of an ancient market town but without a church hall and basic facilities. Efforts to develop community engagement were being hampered by the limitations of the Grade 1 listed building and a lack of flexible spaces.
Craigmyle consultants have been working with the PCC since 2016 to deliver a heritage sensitive re-ordering and restoration project through four phases of work at a cost approaching £1 m.
The phased approach to fundraising has been instrumental to the notable success the project has enjoyed in winning a wide array of grant funding support.
