Whether it's for wheelchair access or a new building we help churches make a real impact in the community by making loans at the lowest practicable rates of interest!
"…with the knowledge that MCA would be able to offer the Church Council a loan, it was agreed to proceed with the building work…to provide facilities which were fit for purpose and of high quality…and the Archbishop of York John Sentamu dedicated the building."
Emmanuel Church Trustees, Saltburn
We provide loans to churches and associated organisations
at the lowest practicable rate of interest. Our loans are primarily intended to enable churches to acquire, develop or repair church buildings for the benefit and inspiration
of the church and community.
We seek to operate to the highest standards of ethical behaviour in all that we do.
At MCA we provide the right kind of loan facility to enable a project to begin quicker, often giving the benefits of cost savings as well as maintaining the initial momentum and enthusiasm of the congregation or trustees.
With over 125 years’ experience our funding is specifically for Christian churches and associated organisations. Our loans are generally from £25,000 up to £750,000 (see note below) and we offer flexible tailored finance for each situation.
We provide term loans for building projects and bridging loans for manse purchases. We also provide loan financing to a wide variety of projects from the installation of solar panels to new build projects and extensions.
Note: The maximum available amount loan will be assessed against various factors including the size and nature of the project, the denomination of the borrower (if applicable), the security available and the loan term. Please contact us for further information.
Low rates of interest are charged and there are no penalties for early repayment.
The benefit of being able to start a project at an early stage before costs start to escalate.
Loans up to £60,000 are unlikely to require a legal charge over the property.

Loan repayment pattern – 6 monthly repayments of capital and interest over the life of the loan.
Whilst smaller loans are normally repayable over 4 to 5 years, individual consideration will be given to longer-term loans for larger projects.
There is the possibility of arranging a site visit by one or more representatives from MCA or for representatives from the church or associated organisation to visit the MCA offices if this is preferable.
"We are so grateful to MCA for partnering with us and providing the necessary finance."
