Mission Project Grants

MISSION PROJECT GRANTS

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.

Before completing the application form, you should contact your Regional Minister who will oversee and discuss both the project and the application.

Applications for Mission Project Grants will be considered at any point in the year. The maximum amount payable for any one project is £3000 to help fund the start up costs of bespoke mission projects and special one-off mission events. Grants must normally be match funded by the church.
