holiday grants


Holiday Grants are made, in many cases of a sufficient size to make a significantly helpful contribution to clergy (and their family's) enjoyment of human life.  The ECA Benefit Fund appreciates very much any Legacies, Donations (Gift Aided if possible) and Church Collections, all of which can increase the amount we are able to give in Holiday Grants to very appreciative clergy and their families for a rest from duty.

Holiday Grant applications are made to the Almoner: The Reverend G. Richard W. Hall, M.A., LL.B., 45 Howard Park, Greystoke, Penrith, Cumbria CA11 0TU

A Christian family is offering holidays in their beautiful 6-bedroomed country house in France to members of the English Clergy Association at cost price. This 13th Century Manor with private pool is located in a secluded and peaceful location near Agen in the Lot et Garonne region of France. The house sleeps up to 14 people and is around a one hour drive from Bordeaux, Toulouse and Bergerac airports. It is only a five-minute drive from the local village of Aiguillon with its shops and twice-weekly farmers market. The house is available from March to Mid-June and September to the end of November, January and February. The cost is £450 for one week and £600 for ten days or two weeks. The family hopes that the house will serve as a place of prayer, relaxation and enjoyment for those who visit.
