Mission and Growth Fund

Children, young people and their families are a key missional priority for the Diocese of Exeter.

The £200,000 Mission and Growth Fund is available for Mission Communities to apply for funding to help them develop projects aimed at growing new disciples amongst children, young people and families.

Applications can be made for up to £20,000, but most grants will be for smaller amounts than that.

Applications need to be made on behalf of a Mission Community rather than an individual parish and will need to demonstrate how the project will achieve the aim of growing new disciples amongst children, young people and families. Please read the guidance here.

We have lots of people who would be very happy to help you with your project plan or application. Please see a contact list here.

You can view a version of the application form before you fill it in online here.
