Mission Funding

  • We would like to be able to offer help to local churches in making their buildings suitable for mission in the twenty-first century and in having the personnel to help engage in mission activities. We have two funds to provide help, the Outreach Fund which gives grants typically of a few hundred pounds for evangelism. We could aim to disburse £5,000 through the Outreach fund in each year between 2009 and 2011

1. Mission Encouragement

Mission Encouragement

  • We would like each local church to have a mission plan. This is usually achieved by working on the new version of the Pastorate Profile. We are offering help to ministers and elders through our Mission Enablers, Interim Moderators and members of the Training Team. It would be good to have copies sent to the Synod office then we could know how many churches have done it. We could have a target of 40 by the end of 2009, 80 by the end of 2010, and all by the end of 2011.
