The Award is made for repair or conservation of fabric, fittings or furnishings carried out in the last 18 months at an historic church, chapel or other faith building which remains in use for worship. However, cathedrals of any denomination are not eligible.
It is not essential that the building is listed as being of architectural or historic interest – its age or architectural significance is less important than the quality of the repair.
