There is no longer an ‘open’ application process for grants from the Mission in Britain Fund or Fund for Property administered by the Connexional Grants Committee (CGC). The existing processes remain suspended by the Strategy & Resources Committee of the Methodist Conference since spring 2020. This letter provides a complete update, including the ending of the CGC.
New ways of allocating the Connexional Mission in Britain Fund to appropriate projects (such as Church at the Margins projects, Methodist Action on Poverty and Justice projects, and New Places for New People) are being explored in the meantime and will be communicated broadly once formally adopted.
Mission in Britain grants have enabled people in local situations to deliver Our Calling through innovative and ground-breaking projects which have created benefits for the wider Connexion. You can see funded projects here - What have we already funded?
If you would like to discuss existing projects you can email Connexional Grants, or phone Julian Bond, Connexional Grants Team Leader on 0207 467 5178.
