The main aims of the five-year Faith in Maintenance project.
Faith in Maintenance
"Stave off decay by daily care."
- William Morris
The SPAB's award-winning Faith in Maintenance project helped volunteers who care for historic places of worship to understand their buildings better and to carry out basic preventative maintenance. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and English Heritage, the project ran for five years (2007 -2012). It delivered 150 courses and trained more than 5,000 volunteers throughout England and Wales for Anglican, Methodist, United Reformed Church, Roman Catholic and Jewish groups.
