Continuing its support for thousands of churches across the UK, Ecclesiastical Insurance has kicked off the latest iteration of its Trust 130 campaign – which aims to raise funds for places of worship.
Launched in 2017 to mark Ecclesiastical Insurance’s 130th anniversary, the Trust 130 campaign allows customers to show their support for UK churches. For every home insurance policy taken out by a customer with Ecclesiastical, the insurer donates £130 to an Anglican Church or cathedral of the policyholder’s choice.
Since the campaign’s launch, Ecclesiastical has raised more than £430,000, benefitting a total of 2,283 churches. The funds have been used to help with projects such as the restoration of artwork, the installation of a new sound system, improved accessibility as well as maintenance and repair projects.
“Thanks to our customers’ nominations we have donated over £430,000 to churches since 2017 and we know that this money can make a huge difference. The donations have funded everything from repairs and day to day running costs, to exciting new projects and equipment – the possibilities are endless,” said Ecclesiastical Insurance church operations director Michael Angell.
Angell added that Ecclesiastical is delighted to announce the extension of the Trust 130 campaign, because it means the insurer will be able to support even more churches through donations.

This week, Ecclesiastical Insurance also revealed that it had updated its brand visual identity, with a new star logo and the colour orange made central to the company’s motif. The change was made to represent “a more modern Ecclesiastical Insurance – shaped by tradition, while looking to the future,” the insurer said in a statement.
