Do you have a small church project that could have a big impact?

Are you looking for a relatively small grant that requires no match funding?

If so, this could be just right for you; £5,000 to fund small but not insignificant capital projects that will generate outcomes which achieve and support mission, community or growth.

There are always good ideas on the boil to enhance welcome, improve accessibility, or perhaps to make small but much needed changes to internal areas. So now is the time to make a significant impact through a small change.

Details, including a full list of criteria and downloadable application form, are available below.

2020 remaining application deadlines are:

  • 18 September for an October decision
  • 4 December for a January 2021 decision

If you are successful, you will be expected to draw on the grant within 12 months.

Please note: If you have a larger project which you are looking to fund, the Raymond Ross Large Grant Scheme will become available again shortly – watch out for announcements on this website or in E-news.

How your church can start taking card payments!

As fewer people carry cash, it’s becoming increasingly important for parishes to look at alternative ways to receive payments and donations.

There’s a new category on the Parish Buying website to help churches consider the different types of reader for contactless and chip and pin card payments.  

Alongside small hand-held card readers (which cost as little as £19 each) there now are more sophisticated self-service donation units available for churches to buy.

To find out more visit www.parishbuying.org.uk/contactless

 

>> Churches that have trialled a digital collection box have reported a 97% increase in donations! Read more (from BBC News)
