Funding opportunities

Diocesan Development Fund

Any ministry unit or mission venture can apply to the Diocesan Council for funds for development projects. Projects should connect to the mission and ministry of the local ministry unit and align with the wider vision of the diocese. They will reach new people, new locations or new generations; employ innovative methods of mission and ministry; or develop leaders.

The Diocesan Development Fund application process is closed until further notice.
