The Synod team is here to help churches do their work! We can offer advice, support and encouragement to local congregations at any stage of their journey from funding to property, vision to engagement – we are here to help!

Mission Grants

The aim of the mission fund is to enable the churches of Northern Synod to be lively, informed and effective in being the church in their local setting, in the light of the five marks of mission.

There are two categories of grants:

Small grants, up to £10,000

Large grants, from £10,000 to £50,000
