District Advance Fund Grant Applications

The District Grants Committee meets prior to the District Leadership Team, to whom they recommend suitable applications for grants. 

If possible, the application should be with the District Grants Officer 4 weeks prior to the meeting of the Committee. 

Applications can be submitted electronically (preferred) or by post to the District Grants Officers (contact details in application pack)

Grants cover all aspects of discipleship from property to staffing and including resourcing discipleship and mission in any way. It is worth contacting the Grants Officer about any possible application-large or small.


During the period of the grant, an annual interim report is requested, and a final report is required on completion of the grant period / project.
