Christian Innovation Grants 2017

20 Christian Innovation Grants of £2,000 on offer for the best new community projects led by local churches.

If your church has plans for innovative work to impact your local community, then you could be eligible to apply.   Each £2,000 grant will provide essential seed funding for the 20 best ideas to come to life and grow, creating new ways for churches to engage with their local community.

In 2017 we have two funding opportunities, with deadlines in the summer and autumn. We can only accept online applications.

Summer – closing date – midnight  Monday 3 July 2017
Autumn – closing date – midnight  Monday 27 November 2017 

We are looking for project ideas that offer better solutions to local problems that make a positive difference to the most vulnerable and express the love of Jesus beyond Church and out into the community.  Put simply, we are looking for new ways of harnessing church resources and the passion of Christians for the benefit of the wider community.
