Mission Project Grants MPG

Mission Project Grants (MPG)

Mission Project Grants can be given in order to encourage and enable Baptist churches to respond to the mission needs of their community as part of their ongoing work and ministry. They are one-off grants for new projects or new initiatives within existing projects.  These projects must have a mission focus and in serving the community they should share the Good News of the Gospel.

  • Priority will be given to those which are innovative and creative evangelistic initiatives which will involve working with those who cannot yet be considered as disciples of Jesus Christ and/or enabling people to make a free and informed response to the invitation to faith and repentance.
  • The EMBA Grants Group are unlikely to fund:
    • Building Projects – other EMBA Grants are available for building works
    • Large Projects – where a grant of £3000 is not going to make a significant difference
    • Projects which churches are clearly able to fund themselves
    • Projects which are not linked with a church’s ongoing mission strategy.
  • The maximum amount payable for any one project is £3,000. A church would not normally apply for a Mission Project Grant more than once in any three-year period.
  • All churches requesting a grant should already be meaningfully supporting Home Mission. All churches who receive a grant from Home Mission should be contributing to the wider Baptist family through Home Mission.

For further information about EMBA Mission Project Grants please read the ‘guidance notes’.

If you are interested in applying for a Mission Project Grant please speak to your Regional Minister before completing an application form.
