Mustard Seed Funding

A project fund is available to those seeking funding between £1k- £8K over a maximum of three years and is aimed at assisting a Parish/Benefice in delivering a specific missional event or to pump prime a missional idea, which could grow into something bigger. The application process is straightforward, with the bid being considered by the relevant Archdeacon and the Diocesan Secretary.

The application process

Mustard seed funding involves completing an application form and submitting it to the Diocesan Programme Manager and/or the relevant Archdeacon.

Please complete the following Application form for Mustard Seed Fund (.doc)

Decision making

Applications for this funding should be forwarded to the Diocesan Programme Manager and must be approved by the relevant Archdeacon, plus either the Diocesan Secretary or the Director of Finance, and endorsed by the Deanery Leadership Team.
