The World Mission Fund supports the following programmes which are currently administered through Global Relationships:


Nationals in Mission Appointments (NMAs):
These appointments encourage and support local people in key mission projects in their own countries. Salaries are paid by the Fund for World Mission and enable new work to be developed.

Mission Partners:
Mission Partners are initially trained in this country and invited to serve for periods of at least one year by partner churches in the Caribbean, South & Central America, Africa, The Pacific, Asia and Europe. Find out more about Mission Partners here.

Fund for Mission in Europe:

Scholarship and Leadership Training (SALT) Programme:
This programme funds men and women to study advanced or post-graduate courses in a cross-cultural setting.

Annual grants for World Church Partners:
These are annual grants given to partner churches enabling the partner church to decide its own priorities for the work of the Kingdom.

General or Solidarity Grants:
These grants are to a partner who is facing particularly difficult circumstances or an emergency situation.  Although the grants may seem quite small in the global scale of things, they are a rapid response that express solidarity in partnership and can often open the door for our partners to receive other funding from around the world. 


Applying for a grant from the World Mission Fund:
Most grants are given to partner churches to develop their own mission priorities. Money is applied for through, and in full consultation with, the relevant Partnership Coordinator in the Global Relationships Office (GR) of the British Methodist Church.

Grants are sought to cover partner church budget deficits, unexpected mission opportunities, movement of personnel, leadership training, and Nationals in Mission Appointments (NMAs).

In all cases, grant requests are scrutinised by a committee before being approved.
