I’m delighted to report that caring for churches, chapels and historic buildings in Yorkshire has now been made easier following the launch of our new web based maintenance service called MaintenanceBooker on 23rd February.

Churches of all denominations in Yorkshire can use the website to request online quotes for essential maintenance services from qualified contractors before then going on to book the maintenance jobs.

Join today

MaintenanceBooker is very straightforward to use so why not visit www.maintenancebooker.org.uk today, register your details, and have a look at what services are currently offered?

Don’t delay any longer in tackling those essential maintenance tasks. If you do your church’s bank balance may soon be tackling expensive repair bills for stonework or a new roof as a result of unattended leaking or blocked gutters. Investing in regular maintenance work to your building now can significantly reduce your longer term costs.

Worried about finding a competent contractor? Don’t be!

We can offer you the reassurance that all MaintenanceBooker contractors have been carefully vetted; are suitably qualified to work with church buildings and possess adequate and appropriate insurances and accreditation so that your church will be in safe hands.

Cost's not an issue

Cost can be a major barrier to tackling maintenance tasks at your church but more help is at hand as you could be eligible to receive a Preventive Maintenance Micro-Grant to pay 50% of your church’s gutter clearance service if booked through MaintenanceBooker. The grant has been made available by The Pilgrim Trust and there are up to 200 grants available each year. If your church is listed you may also be eligible for an award from the National Churches Trust's Maintenance Grant Programme so don’t waste any more time – apply now!

The MaintenanceBooker service has been developed by the National Churches Trust in partnership with the national procurement company 2Buy2. Look out for further improvements to the website over the next few weeks and months as we explore funding opportunities to expand the service beyond Yorkshire.
